A WLD consists of one or more Dell EMC 14G VxRail clusters that are managed by one vCenter Server instance. WLDs are connected to a network core that distributes data between them. WLDs can include different combinations of VxRail clusters and network equipment which can be set up with varying levels of hardware redundancy.
From the VxRail clusters, you can organize separate pools of capacity into WLDs, each with its own set of specified CPU, memory, and storage requirements to support various workloads types such as Horizon or business-critical apps like Oracle databases. As new VxRail physical capacity is added by the SDDC Manager, it is made available for consumption as part of a WLD.
There are two types of WLDs that can be deployed:
More detail about each type of WLD is provided in the next section.
