This section describes how to install and activate the VMware HCX Cloud Manager and VMware HCX Connector components.

VMware HCX has two component services: HCX Cloud Manager and HCX Connector. These components work together to provide the VMware HCX services. In cloud-to-cloud environments, you deploy HCX Cloud Manager at both the source and destination sites. In legacy vSphere-to-cloud (private or public) deployments, you install HCX Connector at your on-premises or legacy site and HCX Cloud Manager at the destination cloud site.
