In this new blog I will create a VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) on my homelab. This is a test drive for what VCF is and what we can with it.
Before you can deploy a VCF environment you need the next requirements:
- VMware Cloud Builder (Latest) ova file.
- Licenses for ESXI, vSAN, NSX and vCenter.
- VLC (Download url)
- Router that supports BGP and VLANs. You can use yvatta or PFsense.
- DNS/DHCP server
- NTP server
- A single physical server with 12 cores, 128GB RAM and 800GB SSD (My Homelab has that resources)
When we have the requirements we can deploy a VCF environment. Before I write down a large blog for it. I did use the blog of vkernelblog.com to build my own VCF environment.
So when need to build your own VCF environment I would say check the blog of vkernelblog.com
