How to do it…

As with other parts of the physical design, the performance, capacity, availability, and recoverability are all factors to consider in the physical compute design. The following steps can be performed to create the physical compute design:

  1. Select server hardware that satisfies the logical compute design.
  2. Verify the compatibility of each component of the compute hardware using the VMware HCL.
  3. Configure compute resources to satisfy ...
