Start by choosing how to connect your SDDC to your on-premises data center. You can configure a route-based IPsec VPN or a policy-based IPsec VPN. In addition, you can configure AWS Direct Connect for faster communication between your on-prem data center and the cloud SDDC.

You create only one IPsec VPN tunnel between your on-premises environment and cloud data center. This will serve as the VPN connection for both management and compute gateways.
