The complete list of prerequisites can be found here.

 

The items from the prerequisite list that absolutely need to be done ahead of time are;

 

Once all those prerequisites are completed, you can move on to the deployment.

There are two ways to do the deployment; via the Azure Portal or a Powershell deployment script.

 

After the deployment completes, you most may want to connect Azure VMware Solution back to your on-premises environment via ExpressRoute and then setup VMware HCX to migrate workloads from your on-premises environment to Azure VMware Solution.

 

You should check out the Azure VMware Solution Hands-on-Lab and give a read to Emad Younis’ blog post Overview of Azure VMware Solution Next Evolution. He does a great job going over the deployment in detail and post-deployment and unique benefits to Azure VMware Solution.
