The VMware Cloud on AWS Operations Guide provides information about configuring advanced features that support ongoing operation of your VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC, including storage management, provisioning, and seamless interoperation with your on-premises data center.

Intended Audience

This guide is primarily for VMware Cloud on AWS organization members who have the VMware Cloud on AWS Administrator role or another role that includes administrative rights over objects owned by your organization. It covers operational areas like provisioning your SDDC with content from your on-premises data center, using and integrating VMware Cloud on AWS with other VMware services, including VMware Live Recovery and VMware NSX Advanced Firewall as well as with AWS services like S3 and Direct Connect,.

We assume you already have experience creating and using an SDDC as described in the VMware Cloud on AWS Getting Started guide. Experience configuring and managing vSphere in an on-premises environment and familiarity with virtualization concepts are assumed. In-depth knowledge of Amazon Web Services is useful, but is not required.
