To install Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure on a vSAN Ready Node cluster, you first build the vSAN Ready Node cluster itself and then you deploy the Horizon Air Link appliance into the cluster.

Important

Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure is not supported for use in a vCenter Server environment that has more than one virtual data center configured in it. That data center is the vSAN Ready cluster. When you set up Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure in the vCenter Server environment, ensure that the environment contains only one data center before deploying the Horizon Air Link into the environment.

Building a vSAN Ready Node cluster involves installing ESXi on each server, followed by configuring initial networking on the resulting ESXi hosts and configuring them as a vSAN cluster.

When using vSAN Ready Node cluster as the hyper-converged infrastructure for Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure, use the vSAN Ready Node cluster vCenter to deploy the Horizon Air Link appliance OVA. After the appliance is deployed and powered on, you use it to connect with the VMware hosted service, Horizon Cloud, and begin the Horizon Cloud Node configuration process.
