VMware Cloud on AWS uses NSX for ease of management by providing logical networks to virtual machines. When a Cloud SDDC cluster is scaled out, NSX automatically connects the new hosts to the logical networks and the VMkernel networks.

The customer cloud administrator is unable to configure or add and remove VMkernel networks which provide infrastructure services, but they have full control over logical networks. The NSX logical network construct is the Cloud SDDC equivalent to the on-premises SDDC distributed switch port group.
