Cloud API and CLI guide
By Owen Allen-Oracle on Aug 16, 2012
One of the new features of Ops Center 12c is the virtual data center, or vDC. I talked a little bit last week about how to set one up.
Once you've got a vDC running, you can manage it in a few different ways. You can always use the Ops Center UI, but you'll likely want to manage vDC resources without having to log into the Ops Center UI each time, so 12c provides two other methods for managing vDC resources.
The first is the cloud infrastructure API. This is a web service interface that lets you manage vDC resources without using the Ops Center UI.
The second is the cloud infrastructure CLI, which lets you manage vDC resources from a terminal.
Both of these options are discussed in detail in the Cloud Infrastructure API and CLI reference guide.
