SDDC Manager Controller VM includes the logic for deploying the software stack, managing workload domains, managing hardware tasks, and performing lifecycle management. It provides a persistent data store.
Bring-Up Service The bring-up service deploys the SDDC software stack on your physical rack. It creates the management domain on the first rack in a Cloud Foundation system. A resource pool is created on the management domain which can contain user-created workload domain VMs.
Manager Service The Manager Service manages the SDDC stack. It creates, expands, and deletes workload domains according to your specifications.
LCM Service LCM service performs lifecycle management on the Cloud Foundation software as well as the VMware software components included in the SDDC software stack.
System Controller Service The System Controller Service starts the other SDDC Manager services and also re-starts them when necessary.
Events Engine The events engine pushes SDDC Manager events to vRealize Log Insight. The events engine process can also display events information on the SDDC Manager UI dashboard.
Hardware Management Services The Hardware Management Services ( HMS) manages the hardware in the Cloud Foundation system, such as hosts and network switches. It provides the necessary functions required for discovering, bootstrapping, and monitoring the hardware. HMS runs on the SDDC Manager Controller VM, where it can access all hosts and switches on the out-of-band network.
