Applications (short: app): few investments today are as essential to business success and digital transformation.

The most important strategic decision you’ll make in the next five years is selecting your software stack. When looking to expand your data center and move to the hybrid cloud, admin simplicity and intrinsic security are non-negotiable. What’s more, you need a software-defined data center that allows you to scale and build on existing investment.

Getting started with VCF Part 14 – Connecting vRA to NSX-T WLD (alternate method)

Getting started with VCF Part 14 – Connecting…

In my most recent VMware Cloud Foundation post (part 13), I highlighted the fact that if you used NSX-T as the networking platform for your workload domain (WLD), you could not attach vRealize Automation (vRA) to such a WLD via SDDC Manager. In that previous post, I showed how to manually deploy the vRA proxy agents on the Proxy VMs. These Proxy VMs were already deployed via SDDC Manager as part of the overall vRA deployment through SDDC Manager, but the agents were not installed at this…Read More

Getting started with VCF Part 13 – Connect vRealize to WLDs

Getting started with VCF Part 13 – Connect…

I’m still on my VMware Cloud Foundation v3.9 journey. My latest task was to connect my vRealize Components to my Workload Domains (WLDs). In part 2 I deployed vRealize Log Insight (vRLI) and vRealize Operations (vROps), and then in part 3 and part 4, I rolled out vRealize Automation. Now I wanted to connect them to the WLDs that I had rolled out previously. SDDC Manager makes this really easy. In just a couple of clicks I had connected vRLI and vROps to both VI WLDs. However, on trying to…Read More

Getting started with VCF Part 12 – NSX Manager Backups

Getting started with VCF Part 12 – NSX Manager…

I kept seeing an orange banner when I log into my SDDC Manager displaying a warning about my NSX Manager being backed up to the SDDC appliance rather than an external SFTP server. You may have spotted it in previous posts on VCF 3.9 already. I therefore decided to configure the NSX backups to use an external destination. The steps are very straight-forward but there are a few nuances which I will call out in this post. First, here is the warning (not sure if it is readable, but it is…Read More

Getting started with VCF Part 11 – External…

I got an interesting question recently on my VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) blog series. An observation was made that all of my posts highlighted vSAN as the storage for both the management domain and the workload domains. The question was whether other types of storage could be used in VCF. While we would always promote vSAN as the primary storage for VCF, the answer is yes, other storage types can be used. But I need to qualify this statement. The management domain always uses vSAN. This is…Read More
