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.
|PowerSwitch S5248F-ON||Two switches in each rack as leaf switches|
|PowerSwitch S5232F-ON||Two spine switches|
|PowerSwitch N3248TE-ON||One in each rack for out-of-band (OOB) management traffic|
|VxRail nodes||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.
