Deploying NetApp HCI

The NetApp Deployment Engine enables you to quickly deploy NetApp HCI. During deployment, you can let the NetApp Deployment Engine automatically set many of the networking configuration details for you. After deployment, NetApp HCI will be ready to serve highly available compute and storage resources in a production environment.

Before you begin

You have ensured that all compute and storage nodes that will be part of the initial deployment are running the same versions of Element software (for storage nodes) and Bootstrap OS (for compute nodes).

If you are joining an existing VMware vSphere environment, you have completely logged out of vCenter Server.
