This is a guide for setting up Cloud Foundry in a hybrid environment with virtualization and bare-metal infrastructure. Cloud Foundry is made up of many components. It makes sense to run most of them in a virtual environment for resource sharing and separation reasons. And these pieces might not require the resources for an entire physical machine all to itself.
Computing components, such as DEA Runner or Diego Cells, should run on Bare-Metal to fully make use of the computing power, without spending resources for your virtualization tier.
This tutorial will guide you step by step, to set up Cloud Foundry components on vSphere
and DEA Runner on Bare-Metal machines. When you finish, your environment will look like this:
