VMware Cloud Foundation – Expand Workload Domain

In this video, we’ve completed the imaging and initial bring up process for the VMware Cloud Foundation instance. It includes two qualified top-of-rack switches, a management switch and 12 vSAN Ready Nodes. A four-node Management Domain is in place along with a four-node VI Workload Domain. Now, we’ll add capacity to the workload domain from available vSAN Ready Nodes in the VMware Cloud Foundation instance. There is a ton of automated goodness happening under the hood during the workload domain creation phase. Watch closely and you’ll catch the tasks being orchestrated across the integrated platform.
