With Workload Management, you can deploy and operate the compute, networking, and storage infrastructure for vSphere with Kubernetes. vSphere with Kubernetes transforms vSphere to a platform for running Kubernetes workloads natively on the hypervisor layer. When enabled on a vSphere cluster, vSphere with Kubernetes provides the capability to run Kubernetes workloads directly on ESXi hosts and to create upstream Kubernetes clusters within dedicated resource pools.

You begin the Workload Management deployment in Cloud Foundation, where the underlying infrastructure is validated. You then complete the deployment in the vSphere UI.

With Cloud Foundation 4.0.1, you can enable Workload Management on the management domain default cluster.
