You begin the Cloud Foundation deployment process by deploying the Cloud Foundation Builder VM. You then download the deployment parameters sheet from the Cloud Foundation Builder VM. Complete the deployment parameters spreadsheet to define your network information, host details, and other required information. This spreadsheet is then converted to a Javascript Object Notation (JSON) file and uploaded to the Cloud Foundation Builder VM. The provided information is validated, and the automated phase of the deployment process begins.

Prerequisites

You must prepare your environment for deploying Cloud Foundation. See the VMware Cloud Foundation Planning and Preparation Guide.
