What allows Cloud Foundation to build a complete SDDC on VxRail is the SDDC Manager and VxRail Manager software tool integration shown in Figure 6. SDDC Manager orchestrates the deployment, configuration, and lifecycle management of vCenter, NSX, and vRealize Suite above the ESXi and vSAN layers of VxRail. It unifies multiple VxRail clusters as workload domains or as multi-cluster workload domains. Integrated with the SDDC Manager management experience, VxRail Manager is used to deploy, configure, and lifecycle manage ESXi, vSAN and hardware firmware. The deployment of VxRail clusters uses the native VxRail Manager process. For VxRail lifecycle management, it is accomplished using a fully integrated and seamless SDDC Manager orchestrated process that leverages VxRail Manager to execute it natively. VxRail Manager also monitors health of hardware components and provides remote service support.
