This end of week i had the chance to participate in a really nice training : VMware on AWS : Deploy and manage.
I’ll try to perform a serie of blog posts around this trendy topic that i performed along this formation.
What it look to create a new SDDC into VMware on AWS?
First, let’s connect to vmc.vmware.com And click on “Create SDDC”
It’s quite simple but you have few choices to perform :
AWS Region : In my case I picked, EU (London), you may choose between many AWS region. Below find some detailed informations on this :
Deployment : Single host is possible but only for 30 days. In my case, i’ll pick multi host.
Strech cluster allows you to create your SDDC stretched out between two zones to create an SDDC that is highly available, fault tolerant and scalable.
SDDC Name : Simply the name that you’ll give to your SDDC
Number of hosts : Choose between 3 or 4 in your first cluster, you will be able to scale out your SDDC with another cluster up to 16 hosts.
Cloud : Option that you can’t see in production.
Zerocloud is dedicated to training environment. It allows you to create “fake” SDDC. Nothing will be deployed at the end of this operations.
