Nested VSAN/VCF HomeLab Design

Hello

I dont know i should ask this question on VCF form or VSAN so i am asking on both.

I have two physical hosts Dell R630. 128 GB Ram , 4x500 SSD, 2tb HHD on each server. and one NUC for witness node.

Please suggest which option is better .

would like to build nested homeLab VSAN , VCF and NSX-T

1: Build 2 physical node VSAN cluster and build nested homeLab " VCF and NSX-T on top of VSAN " .

2: Build nested 4 Node Cluster on each physical hosts and use one cluster for VCF/MGMT CLUSTER and another COMP cluster for NSX-T and other VMs.

please help  how can plan IP/ Network.

Moderator: Given that vSAN would be part of any VCF deployment, and posting into multiple forum areas is discouraged, I shall delete your thread in the vSAN area.
