Simply, I have one site under ESXI 6.5 with few virtual machines hosted on two clusters.
I want to duplicate this infrastructure to a new site just like a disaster recovery with VMware technologies and take this opportunity to use VMware Cloud Foundation as private cloud.
So, what's the best option and possible ?
- Install VMware Cloud Foundation on my existing ESXI then integrate the new site ?
- Migrate to VMware Cloud Foundation and lost the legacy site ?
I thank you in advance for the support.
I had the confirmation in the documenation as well :
"Migration from Existing vSphere to VCF
VMware Cloud Foundation is a greenfield installation only, meaning that Cloud Foundation creates a new vSphere
infrastructure and Single Sign-On domain. Existing workloads running on older vSphere versions cannot be
managed from Cloud Foundation"
I thank you for your response.
It seems that I have to migrate and lost the source site otherwise I stop with VMware Cloud Foundation
not sure about DR site using vcf and how workloads can be migrated to newer site that require a well design approach.
but you can try this one
