You can add clusters to a cloud SDDC up to the maximum configured for your account.

Additional clusters are created in the same availability zone as the initial SDDC.

Currently adding a cluster to an SDDC deployed with a multiple availability zone cluster is not supported.

Logical networks you have created for your SDDC are automatically shared across all clusters. Compute and storage resources are configured similarly for all clusters. For example:

  • Each cluster contains a Compute-ResourcePool and a Mgmt-ResourcePool, with the same permissions that these have in the initial SDDC cluster.

  • Each cluster contains a vsanDatastore and a workloadDatastore, with the same permissions that these have in the initial SDDC cluster.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the VMC Console at https://vmc.vmware.com.
  2. On the card for the SDDC you want to add a cluster to, select Actions > Add Cluster.
  3. Select the number of hosts in the cluster.
  4. click Add Cluster.

Results

A progress bar shows the progress of cluster creation.
