The system administrator can deploy and install multiple instances of the vRealize Automation appliance and individual IaaS components for scale, redundancy, high availability, and disaster recovery.

In a typical architecture, the IaaS components are distributed over multiple machines.

For high availability deployments, load balancers distribute the workload across the computing environment. System administrators configure load balancers outside of the vRealize Automation framework.

The following figure shows the components of an enterprise deployment with distributed components, redundancy, and load balancers.
