This section briefly describes the hardware that is used to validate the deployment examples in this document. Appendix A contains a complete listing of hardware and software that is validated for this guide.
|Two switches in each rack as leaf switches
|Two spine switches
|One in each rack for out-of-band (OOB) management traffic
|Eight nodes in two clusters
Note: All hosts within each VxRail cluster must have identical hardware. VxRail supports cluster sizes up to 64 nodes. With SFS, each VxRail cluster must have a minimum of three nodes. Two-node VxRail clusters are not supported.
The following sections describe the major hardware components in greater detail.
