A vRealize Automation small deployment comprises systems of 10,000 managed machines or fewer and includes the appropriate virtual machines, load balancers, and port configurations. The small deployment serves as a starting point for a vRealize Automation deployment that enables you to scale in a supported manner to a medium or large deployment.

When deploying vRealize Automation, use the Enterprise deployment process to provide a separate infrastructure web site and Manager Service address.

Support

A small deployment can support the following items.

  • 10,000 managed machines

  • 500 catalog items

  • 10 concurrent machine provisions

Requirements

A small deployment must be configured with the appropriate components.

  • vRealize Automation appliance: vrava-1.ra.local

  • Infrastructure Core server: inf-1.ra.local.

  • MSSQL Database Server: mssql.ra.local

  • vRealize Business for CloudAppliance: vrb.ra.local
