All VMware Validated Design use cases are based on the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center. You install all products in the virtual infrastructure layer. You can then deploy scenarios following the instructions in this document. Other 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. Next, 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 distributed logical routers (DLRs).

The following table gives an overview.

Single-Region Deployment of the Dynamic Resource Tiering Scenario

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

  1. Deploy the Region A virtual infrastructure.

  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 Creating Blueprints with Dynamic Resource Tiering in Region A.

    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
