The Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region documentation provides step-by-step instructions for installing and configuring the virtual infrastructure workload domain with RedHat OpenShift installed on top of it, based on VMware Validated Design.

The Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region documentation does not contain step-by-step instructions for performing all required post-configuration tasks because their nature often depends on the requirements of your organization.

Intended Audience

The Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region documentation is intended for cloud architects, infrastructure administrators, and cloud administrators who are familiar with and want to use VMware software to deploy in a short time and manage a software-defined data center (SDDC) that meets the requirements for capacity, scalability, backup and restore, and extensibility for disaster recovery support.

Required VMware Software

Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region is compliant and validated with certain product versions. See VMware Validated Design Release Notes.

Required Third-Party Software

Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region is compliant and validated with a certain version of the OpenShift Container Platform. See VMware Validated Design Release Notes.

Before You Apply This Guidance

The sequence of the documentation of this design follows the stages for implementing and maintaining an SDDC. See Documentation Map for VMware Validated Design.

To deploy a workload domain by following the prescriptive path of VMware Validated Design, your environment must have a certain configuration. To apply Deployment of a RedHat OpenShift Workload Domain Workload Domain in the First Region, you must:

  • Complete the Planning and Preparation Workbook with your deployment options included.

  • Deploy a single-region SDDC management domain. See Deployment of the Management Domain in the First Region.

  • Optionally, read Architecture and Design for a Red Hat OpenShift Workload Domain.

The same requirement applies if you are following the VMware Cloud Foundation documentation to deploy a virtual infrastructure workload domain. See the VMware Cloud Foundation documentation.
