Step 4: Deploy the vContainer Host

To avoid the overhead of creating a virtual machine (VM) instance for individual vSmart controllers, you can create a vContainer host. A vContainer host is a VM that holds multiple vSmart controllers as containers. The vSmart controllers in a vContainer host are independent of each other, and can belong to different networks.

To create a vContainer host:

  1. Create a VM instance on a server that is running hypervisor software. You can create the VM on ESXi, KVM, or Amazon AWS.
  2. Create a minimal configuration for the vContainer host.
  3. Add a vSmart controller to the vContainer host.
