The Scenarios documentation for VMware Validated Design for IT Automating IT provides implementation steps for a set of scenarios. Based on the VMware Validated Design reference architecture, the guide includes step-by-step instructions for commonly executed tasks.

Each scenario explains how to implement a common use case. Information on prerequisites is included at the beginning of each chapter.

Each scenario is a VMware Validated Design and is based on the products that are used in the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center. Scenarios include step-by-step instructions and provides screen shots for complex steps.

Note

Some of the scenarios include some setup tasks that are also covered in the Deployment documentation for the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center. In those cases, do not duplicate the setup to avoid problems.

VMware Validated Design for IT Automating IT is compliant and validated with certain product versions. See the VMware Validated Design Release Notes for more information about supported product versions.

The Scenarios documentation for VMware Validated Design for IT Automating IT is intended for cloud architects, infrastructure administrators, and cloud administrators. These users are familiar with VMware software and want to deploy it using a VMware Validated Design.

The scenarios in this document assume that you have installed and configured a single-region design of the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center . See the documents for the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center for details.

This document can be used for a single-region or dual-region deployment.

All procedures with Region A in the title are suitable for a single-region deployment.

All procedures with Region B in the title are for use in a dual-region deployment.

See Scenarios Solution Paths for information on deployments in single region and dual region, and networking configuration supported with each path.
