The remote site must meet the following prerequisites.

Prerequisites

  • Depending on whether you are deploying a VI workload domain or cluster at the remote site, ensure that the appropriate prerequisites are met. See Prerequisites for a Workload Domain and Add a vSphere Cluster to a Workload Domain.
  • VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters supports a minimum of 3 and maximum of 4 hosts. For information on principal and supplemental storage on hosts, see Storage Management.
  • Dedicated WAN connectivity is required between central site and VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site.
  • Primary and secondary active WAN links are recommended for connectivity from the central site to the VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site. The absence of WAN links can lead to two-failure states, WAN link failure, or NSX Edge node failure, which can result in unrecoverable VMs and application failure at the VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site.
  • Minimum bandwidth of 10 Mbps and latency of 50 Ms is required between the central VMware Cloud Foundation instance and VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site.
  • The network at the VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site must be able to reach the management network at the central site.
  • DNS and NTP server must be available locally at or reachable from the VMware Cloud Foundation Remote Clusters site
