The VMware Event Broker Appliance Fling enables customers to unlock the hidden potential of events in their SDDC to easily create event-driven automation. The VMware Event Broker Appliance includes support for vCenter Server and VMware Horizon events as well as any valid CloudEvent through the native webhook event provider. Easily triggering custom or prebuilt actions to deliver powerful integrations within your datacenter across public cloud has never been more easier before. A detailed list of use cases and possibilities with VMware Event Broker Appliance is available here

With this solution, end-users, partners and independent software vendors only have to write minimal business logic without going through a steep learning curve understanding the vSphere or Horizon APIs. As such, we believe this solution not only offers a better user experience in solving existing problems for VI/Cloud Admins, SRE/Operators, Automation Engineers and 3rd Party Vendors. More importantly, it will enable new integration use cases and workflows to grow the VMware ecosystem and community, similar to what AWS has achieved with AWS Lambda.

VMware Event Broker Appliance is provided as a Virtual Appliance that can be deployed to any vSphere-based infrastructure, including an on-premises and/or any public cloud environment running on vSphere.

The VMware Event Broker Appliance follows a highly modular approach, using Kubernetes and containers as an abstraction layer between the base operating system (Photon OS) and the required application services. Currently the following components are used in the appliance:

  • Tanzu Sources for Knative (Github)
    • Supported Event Stream Sources:
    • Supported Event Stream Processors:
  • Contour (Github)
  • Kubernetes (Github)
  • Photon OS (Github)

For more details about the individual components and how they are used in the VMware Event Broker Appliance, please see the Architecture page.
