Options for deploying SFS for VxRail in production include:
- Single rack deployment—A two-leaf SmartFabric is deployed in a single rack. The VxRail nodes in the rack are connected to two leaf switches, and a VxRail cluster is built.
- Expand single rack deployment to multirack—The two-leaf SmartFabric is expanded to multirack by the addition of spine switches to connect the racks and two leaf switches per rack. The VxRail nodes in the additional racks are connected to the additional SmartFabric leaf switches and joined to the existing VxRail cluster.
- Multirack deployment—A multirack SmartFabric with spines and two leaf switches per rack is deployed. VxRail nodes are installed in multiple racks and connected to the SmartFabric leaf switches in each rack. A VxRail cluster is built that uses VxRail nodes in multiple racks.
For the deployment steps for these options, see the appropriate documentation in References.
