Use the Storage tab of the VMC Console to add customer-managed storage to an SDDC cluster.

The Storage tab of the VMC Console gives you the tools you need to add, remove, and reconfigure mountable storage (filesystems) like NFS.

VMware Cloud on AWS supports external storage starting with SDDC version 1.20. For information about upgrading an SDDC, see Submit an Upgrade Schedule Request.

NFS Datastores

NFS datastore support within VMware Cloud on AWS provides independent customer-managed scaling of compute and storage within an SDDC. This data storage may store Virtual Machines, Virtual Disks, Content Libraries, ISO, and similar objects. Customers may attach any of the following VMware Cloud on AWS Certified NFS Storage targets from the SDDC management console.
  • Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP
Datastores are associated with and attached to vSphere Clusters.
SOIC (storage I/O control) is not supported for use in VMware Cloud on AWS datastores and will be automatically disabled.
Integrated services that do not support NFS Datastores
