The physical design of the consolidated SDDC consists of characteristics and decisions that support the logical design. The design objective is to deploy a fully functional cloud management portal according to the resource constraints of the consolidated SDDC environment.

To accomplish this design objective, you deploy or leverage the following components to create a cloud management portal for use with the consolidated SDDC.

  • 1 vRealize Automation Appliance

  • 1 vRealize Automation IaaS Web Server

  • 1 Windows Server running the vRealize Automation Manager Service, DEM Orchestrator, DEM Worker, and IaaS Proxy Agent.

  • 1 vRealize Business Server

  • 1 vRealize Business Data 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. The vRealize Automation appliance, IaaS Web Server, IaaS Manager Server, and vRealize Business Server are deployed in the shared application virtual network that you can use to implement failover, Mgmt-xRegion01-VXLAN. The vRealize Business Data Collector is in the shared local application virtual network Mgmt-RegionA01-VXLAN.
