The VMware Cloud on AWS Operations Guide provides information about configuring advanced SDDC 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 CloudAdmin or CloudGlobalAdmin role. It covers operational areas like provisioning your SDDC with content from your on-premises datacenter, using AWS services like S3 and Direct Connect, and integrating VMware Cloud on AWS with other VMware and Amazon tools.

We assume you already have experience using an SDDC with a management network 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.
