An alternative design for organizations that have a need to manage and control access to infrastructure services from a centralized location can be to leverage a shared infrastructure services model.

This implementation will result in one or more VMware Cloud-based SDDC terminating into a single and centralized infrastructure service endpoint. The configuration of network and security policies can now easily be managed and operated with all ingress and egress traffic terminating to this endpoint. This design can be applicable to both cloud-native services as well as infrastructure services running within an on-premises data center.
