Use Case Deployment Using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager describes an alternative method to deploy and configure a VMware Validated Design use case by using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager. You can use vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager to deploy three common use cases: IT Automating IT, Intelligent Operations, and Micro-Segmentation. Additional documentation is available for each use case.

This guide helps you deploy and configure the products for each use case. See vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager Solution Paths. This guide provides step-by-step instructions for the following tasks:

  • Deployment and configuration of the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager appliance.

  • Pre-deployment tasks for some of the products that are used by the use case.

  • Deployment of the products needed by a use case using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

  • Post-deployment tasks for products that are required by a use case.

Note:

This guide does not include instructions for deploying the foundation products (ESXi, vCenter Server, VMware NSX, vSphere Update Manager Download Service). See the Deployment for Region A document in the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center documentation.
