Create and Manage vApp Templates

A vCloud Director vApp template is a virtual server image that is loaded with an operating system, applications, and data. These templates ensure that virtual servers are consistently configured across an entire organization.

vApp templates are added to vApp catalogs.

You can add a vApp template to a vApp catalog via the OnApp Control Panel. It will be synchronized with vCloud Director and a new vApp template will be added to corresponding vApp catalog in vCloud Director.
