Difference between Conceptual Design, Logical Design and Physical Design?

Jump to solution

I got vsphere 4 design slides and vsphere 5 design slides now can you please tell me the difference between these designs because as per the vsphere 4 design slides whatever the design that is logical design that is physical design as per the vsphere5. Anyone who can tell me which one is correct means vsphere 4 or vsphere 5? vSphere 4 design slides for conceptual, logical and physical design is attached here.

I don't fully understand your question, but will try to provide resources to assist in your learning.  These terms you mentioned are not mutually exclusive and they are relevant across all versions of the product (and are required for each vSphere layer).  With that said, the slides you provided are in fact still relevant.  However, I would recommend digging deeper into these concepts if you are required to create a design.

The diagrams look good to me, the only thing that stands out is that the physical design only shows one side whereas the others show both sides (prod and remote).

The only way to know if these designs are correct is to know what the requirements of the design are -
