Data is king and your users need a sample data platform quickly.

With this Fling, you will leverage your VMware Cloud Foundation 4.0 with vRealize Automation deployment and stand a sample data platform based on vSphere Virtual Machines in less than 20-minutes comprising of Kafka, Spark, Solr, and ELK.

You can also choose whether to deploy a wavefront proxy and configure the components to send data to the wavefront proxy or use your own.


  • Installation of a VMware vSphere 6.7 cluster
  • Installation of a VMware vRealize 8.1 cluster or above
  • An Ubuntu 20.04 VM template with latest VM tools installed and DHCP enabled (current fling solution does not cover IPAM due to complexitites arising with IPAM)
  • Access to the Internet from the Ubuntu machines
  • The Ubuntu template should have the username used for extensibility marked with the NOPASSWD flag in /etc/sudoers (username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL)
  • The vSphere user account used to connect to vCenter run must have read access to the folder containing provisioned VMs and also be granted the VirtualMachine.Interaction.Console privilege
  • Access to port 902 on each individual ESXi host hosting the provisioned VMs
  • The DNS Server used should allow for dynamic updates
  • A working subscription for VMware Tanzu Observability by Wavefront (You can get an evaluation subscription from https://tanzu.vmware.com/observability)
