This post is just a kind reminder of the installation steps of VRA in a distributed mode.
What you will have to do
A few months ago, we used to read that vRO embedded could’nt run in production environments however I recently read that VMware now recommends embedded version for small/medium sized deployments. (found in vRO Cookbook second edition)
VMware vCloud Automation Center Server and VMware vCloud Automation Center WAPI are now installed
Somes considerations regarding vRA load balancing
vRA virtual appliances run concurrently in active/active mode.
For IaaS components, things go a bit different :
|IaaS component||LB Mode|
|Model Manager Data||N/A just one instance, installed on the first (installed) Web site|
|Service Manager||active/passive (however, a manual startup of the service on the second is necessary)|
