VMware Validated Design for the SDDC and this Use Case Documentation

For details on product deployment, see the sections on vSphere, NSX and vRealize LogInsight in the VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center Deployment for Region A documentation. After initial deployment, the product documentation for vSphere and for NSX for vSphere enables you to set up your environment. Because this documentation is already available, the Validated Design for Micro-Segmentation does not include detailed step-by-step instructions for each task.
