We wanted to provide a quick and easy way to help customers get started with VMware Cloud on AWS. Today it is our pleasure to announce the VMware Cloud on AWS Quick Reference Poster. This poster is divided up into five sections, each with hyperlinked headings, providing additional information. The Firewall Rules section is the exception, in this each of the sub-headings are clickable instead of the main heading. The poster is also a good visual representation of the different types of connectivity within VMware Cloud on AWS.
May 2019: the poster has been updated to reflect the latest networking architecture of NSX-T.
Here is a brief breakdown of the five different sections and their content:
- Infrastructure Overview: A high-level diagram showing the relationships between the on-premises data center, the VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC, and native AWS services.
