When you deploy Cloud Foundation on seven or more hosts, the deployment is based on the standard architecture. A dedicated management domain on the first rack hosts the management components of the SDDC software stack. The remaining capacity in the Cloud Foundation is used for user-created workload domains or for expansion of the management domain. Thus, there is a separation between the infrastructure domains and user-created workload domains.

Standard architecture is recommended for Cloud Foundation deployments.
