As part of vSphere Central we previously had a Topology and Upgrade planning tool for vSphere 6.5. It focused on common upgrade and migration paths from vSphere 5.5 and 6.0 to vSphere 6.5.

With the support for Enhanced Linked Mode with Embedded vCenter Server deployments in vSphere 6.5 Update 2 and vSphere 6.7 there have been some topology updates we would like to cover. The updated vSphere 6.7 Topology and Upgrade Planning Tool will help you plan out your New Deployment to vSphere 6.7 or your Upgrade from vSphere 6.0 and 6.5 to vSphere 6.7.

If you have not previously used the tool its actually simple to use. It requires nothing to install and is browser-based. When using the Topology and Upgrade Planning tool, you will be asked questions that guide you through the tool, such as whether you will be doing a new deployment or upgrade, and if you would like to use features such as Enhanced Linked Mode or vCenter HA. In the end you will presented with a recommended deployment with links to key pieces of documentation that can then be emailed or printed.

The vSphere 6.7 Topology and Upgrade Planning Tool can be found here.

Hopefully this helps you plan your deployment or upgrade to vSphere 6.7! If you have any feedback on the tool, please leave it below!
