Before you deploy the SDDC, you must allocate enough compute and storage resources to accommodate the footprint of the management workloads in Region B.

Note:

Storage footprint shows allocated space. Do not consider it if you use thin provisioning according to this validated design.

Virtual Infrastructure Footprint

Allocate the following number of virtual CPUs, amount of RAM and storage space for the management components of the Virtual Infrastructure layer of the SDDC in Region B:
