The software bundle is a collection of all the software, configuration files, utilities, and tools used by VIA to image a physical rack. It contains a manifest file that lists the contents of the bundle. The bundle is based on a hardware bill-of-materials (BoM), that includes specific servers, switch models, and their component level configurations. You can modify a bundle to add 3rd party VIBs.

The bundle contains the following software:

  • vSphere (vCenter Server and ESXi)

  • NSX

  • vSAN

  • vRealize Log Insight

  • SDDC Manager

  • Platform Services Controller
