VxRail is an SDDC in a cluster form factor. All administrative activities, including initial implementation and initialization, configuration, capacity expansion, online upgrades, as well as maintenance and support are handled within the VxRail management system. When the VxRail is installed in your data center and connected to your network, and the physical components are powered on, the VxRail management system automates the full implementation of the final SDDC based on your settings and input.
Before getting to this phase, perform planning and preparation steps to ensure a seamless integration of the final product into your data center environment.
Use the Appendix C: VxRail Cluster Setup Checklist and the Appendix A: VxRail Network Configuration Table to help create your network plan. References to rows in this document are to rows in the VxRail Network Configuration Table.
Once you set up the VxRail cluster and complete the initial initialization phase to produce the final product, the configuration cannot easily be changed. Select the configurations that work most effectively for your organization during this planning and preparation phase.
