By using VMware Marketplace, you select and deploy pre-packaged solutions from VMware Marketplace in your Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) on VMware Cloud on AWS. Let us say you want to use WordPress to create a blog and start using it right away. As a VMware Marketplace user, your first step is to select a pre-packaged solution and subscribe to it. By subscribing to a solution, you configure it for deployment on your target platform, which in this case, is VMware Cloud on AWS. In this scenario, you deploy a Bitnami WordPress OVA template on VMware Cloud on AWS and start a virtual machine from the template.


  • Verify that you have an active VMware Marketplace account.
  • Verify that you can access a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC.
