The next phase is the deployment process of the VxRail cluster targeted for the Cloud Foundation management workload domain. It is built using the information captured during the planning and design phase.
The next step is to deploy the Cloud Foundation Cloud Builder virtual appliance on the VxRail cluster. The configuration settings captured from the planning and design phase are fed into the Cloud Builder virtual appliance, which automates the deployment of the Cloud Foundation software onto the VxRail cluster. This creates the Cloud Foundation management workload domain, and deploys the virtual machines required to support the management workload domain. If a use case requirement is for the future deployment of the vRealize software suite, Cloud Builder deploys two NSX-T Edge virtual appliances into the management workload domain to support upstream connectivity for the Application Virtual Network.
