1.Vsphere Client for Vsphere configuration and preparation:
-Vcenter Server and Vcenter objects:
*Datastore, host clusters, resource pools, Vnetwork distributed switches.
-ESXI host configuration:
*Virtual switches and networks.
2. Vsphere resources, once attached, and managed by Vcloud and Director.
Vcloud Infrastructures rely on VMware Vsphere resources to provide CPU and memory to reun virtual machines. Vcloud Director uses VNetwork Distributed Switches and Vsphere port groups to support virtual machine networking. Vsphere datastores provide storage for virtual machine files and other files necessary for virtual machine operations.
Vcloud Director requires all workloads to be virtualized. Clusters enabled by VMware Vsphere distributed resources scheduler(DRS) should be set to automatically balance the Vcloud Director deployed workloads across the physical compute resources of the DRS cluster.
