This document provides the architecture and design overview of the following areas of the VMware Cloud Provider Stack solution.

  • Physical Infrastructure
  • Virtual Infrastructure
  • Workload mobility
  • HCX design
Note the following considerations for the VCPS design:
  • It is based on NSX-T.
  • Cloud management, Business Continuity, and Disaster Recovery are not part of the design.
  • The design meets the minimum requirement of four ESXi hosts. As a result, having a dedicated management or edge cluster is not considered.
