All VMware Validated Design use cases are based on the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center. Depending on the use case, you install all products in the foundation. You can then deploy scenarios following the instructions in this document. Different use cases might require installation of additional products.

If you use a single-region scenario, you set up Region A of the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center, and perform additional preparation following the steps in Preparing for Region A Scenario Deployment. After that, you set up your environment following the detailed instructions for the scenario. Because some scenarios do not depend on other scenarios, the result is three groups of scenarios with three distinct DLRs.

For example, to create blueprints with dynamic resource tiering in a single-region deployment, you follow these steps.

  1. Deploy the Region A foundation.

  2. Perform all procedures listed in the Prerequisites in Creating Blueprints with Dynamic Resource Tiering in Region A. This includes the procedures in Preparing for Region A Scenario Deployment

  3. Perform all procedures listed in the scenario.

    1. Create Storage Reservation Policies in Region A

    2. Apply a Storage Reservation Policy to a Datastore in Region A

    3. Enable Users to Change Storage Policies in Region A

    4. Provision a Virtual Machine With a Modified Storage Policy in Region A

The following table gives an overview.
