The physical design consists of characteristics and decisions that support the logical design. The design objective is to deploy a fully functional Cloud Management Portal with High Availability and the ability to provision to both Regions A and B.

To accomplish this design objective, you deploy or leverage the following in Region A to create a cloud management portal of the SDDC.

  • 2 vRealize Automation Server Appliances

  • 2 vRealize Automation IaaS Web Servers.

  • 2 vRealize Automation Manager Service nodes (including the DEM Orchestrator)

  • 2 DEM Worker nodes

  • 2 IaaS Proxy Agent nodes

  • 1 vRealize Business for Cloud Server.

  • 1 vRealize Business for Cloud Remote Collector.

  • Supporting infrastructure such as Microsoft SQL Server, Active Directory, DNS, NTP, and SMTP.

    You place the vRealize Automation components in several network units for isolation and failover. All the components that make up the Cloud Management Portal, along with their network connectivity, are shown in the following diagrams.
