Cloud Foundation supports two architecture models - standard and consolidated. Standard Architecture ModelWith the standard architecture model, management workloads run on a dedicated management domain and user workloads are deployed in separate virtual infrastructure (VI) workload domains. Each workload domain is managed by a separate vCenter Server instance which provides for scalability and allows for autonomous licensing and lifecycle management. Consolidated Architecture ModelThe consolidated architecture design targets smaller Cloud Foundation deployments and special use cases. In this design, the management and user workload domains run together on a shared management domain. The environment is managed from a single vCenter Server and vSphere resource pools provide isolation between management and user workloads. In a consolidated architecture model, care must be taken to ensure that resource pools are properly configured as the domain is shared by the management and compute workloads.
