Host rules with Business Intent
· ☕ 3 min read · ✍️ Brett Johnson
vROPS 7.0 launched with a feature called Business Intent which controls workload placement based on vSphere tags Announcement. This feature tackles several use cases one being controlling the host placement of workloads which have physical licencing requirements. Business Intent settings are configured at the data centre (or custom datacenter) level within vROPS 7.0 and can be configured at the per cluster or per host level. For the scope of this post, I am going to cover a customer use case to combine clusters, increaseing availability for some workloads while maintaining licencing compliance for others.
