Deploying VMware-based Anthos on PowerFlex requires:
For Google Anthos VMware based configuration and version compatibility information, see Anthos GKE on-prem Compatibility Matrix.
Also, at least one outbound connection to Google Cloud APIs (*.googleapis.com) is required to complete the Anthos cluster registration and deployment processes.
The following tables provide details of CPU, RAM, and storage requirements for the admin workstation, admin cluster and user cluster:
Table 2. Admin workstation
Admin cluster control plane
Runs the control plane for the admin cluster.
Runs add-ons for the admin cluster.
User cluster control plane
Each user cluster has its own control plane that runs on a VM. The control plane VMs for a user cluster are nodes in the admin cluster. You can choose to create one or three control plane nodes for an individual user cluster.
User cluster worker nodes
A user cluster node is a virtual machine where your workloads run. When you create a user cluster, you decide how many nodes it should have. The resources required for your user cluster nodes depend on the workloads you intend to run.
For more information about resource requirements, see CPU, RAM and storage requirements.
Google Anthos applies the following limits:
Note: These limits can be affected by vSphere configuration and hardware:
