Carbon Black Cloud Workload appliance is deployed as a virtual appliance (packaged as an OVA file) on any ESXi host in your vCenter Server environment. After the appliance is deployed, you must register the appliance with the vCenter Server. You must then configure the appliance to establish a connection between the Carbon Black Cloud console and the on-premises appliance deployed in the vCenter Server. After the connection is established, the appliance imports the virtual machine inventory data to the Carbon Black Cloud console. You can then enable Carbon Black on Windows and Linux VMs.
