Visio Diagrams for VMware Validated Design for SDDC 6.0

This post was originally published on this site



With each release of the VMware Validated Designs, the Solutions Architecture and Information Experience teams create or update the diagrams provided in the Architecture and Design sections of the documentation. These are created as vector files with which we export the PNG files you see in the official documentation.


It’s my pleasure to now share the diagrams from VMware Validated Design for SDDC 6.0 in Microsoft Visio format with the community. If you have deployed or plan to deploy the VMware Validated Design, you can use these diagrams to update hostnames, IP addresses, and the like for your environment.


The set includes:

  • Standard Architecture, (Single and Multi-AZ).
  • Management Domain Foundation
  • Management Domain Cloud Operations and Automation
  • Backup and Restore



All official diagrams for the VMware Validated Design are provided in the product documentation found at

What is next

GitHub is the best place to track the bugs/feature requests related to this module. We have used a combination of projects and labels on our GitHub repo to track issues for this upcoming release. We are using the label Resolved-3.0 to mark issues that we plan to release at some point before we release the module as GA (generally available). To track issues/features to particular preview and GA releases we are using GitHub projects which are titled to reflect the release.

The major feature for our next preview release (preview 3) is allowing for Install-PSResource to accept a path to a psd1 or, json file (using -RequiredResourceFile), or a hashtable or json an input (using -RequiredResource).

How to Give feedback and Get Support

We cannot overstate how critical user feedback is at this stage in the development of the module. Feedback from preview releases help inform design decisions without incurring a breaking change once generally available and used in production. In order to help us to make key decisions around the behavior of the module please give us feedback by opening issues in our GitHub repository.
