An architect is preparing a design for a company planning digital transformation. During the requirements gathering workshop, the following requirements (REQ) and constraints (CON) are identified:
REQ01 The platform must host different types of workloads including applications that must be compliant with internal security standard. REQ02 The infrastructure must initially run 100 virtual machines.
REQ03 Ten of the virtual machines must be compliant with internal security standard.
REQ04 The internal security standard specifies logical network separation for in-scope applications.
CON01 The customer has already purchased the licenses as part of another project.
CON02 The customer has five physical servers that must be reused.
Additionally, based on resource requirements, four physical servers will be enough to run all workloads.
Which recommendation should the architect make to meet requirements while minimizing project costs?
- A: Use Network I/O Control to ensure the internal security zone has higher share value
- B: Purchase additional servers and plan separate, isolated clusters for workloads that must be compliant with internal security
- C: Use a single cluster and ensure that different security zones are separated at least with dedicated VLANs and firewall
- D: Use a single cluster and configure DRS anti-affinity rules to ensure internal security compliant virtual machines cannot migrate between ESXi hosts.
