Virtual Infrastructure Prerequisites

Page last updated:

Warning: VMware Enterprise PKS v1.7 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

The vSphere environment to which you deploy the appliance OVA requires the following configuration:

  • CPU: 2
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Disk: 40 GB
  • Virtual NIC (vNIC) should be assigned to a network with connectivity to vCenter and NSX Datacenter Manager, if you are using NSX-T Data Center as the container networking interface for Enterprise PKS.

Note: The OVA requirements described here are the minimum supported configuration.

The following vSphere clusters must exist in the target vCenter Server datacenter before you can deploy Enterprise PKS from the management console:

  • Management cluster for PKS Management Plane components.
  • At least one compute cluster for Kubernetes Cluster nodes, with the recommendation being to deploy more than one, for high-availability purposes.

For information about the supported versions of vSphere, see the release notes.
