    Great article!
    Can’t wait to deploy my first K8s cluster on vSphere 7.

    One Question: Why would I need a large Edge Node?
    (8 vCPUS and 32GB RAM is quite a lot for a HomeLab deployment)

    Best regards,
    Volker

      This is because load balancers are deployed to the Edge Node. Less than 32 GB will result in failed load balancer deployments (and a non functioning Kubernetes environment). Also check vSphere with Tanzu Basic (new offering), this allows you to run vSphere with Kubernetes without NSX (using open source networking components).
