As a VMware Marketplace user, you subscribe to a solution listed in the catalog and set the deployment configuration for the solution in your target VMware endpoint. In this task, you subscribe to the WordPress Virtual Appliance solution by Bitnami and deploy it as a virtual machine template to a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC.

VMware Cloud on AWS allows you to create vSphere data centers on Amazon Web Services. These vSphere data centers include vCenter Server for managing your data center. By using Hybrid Linked Mode, you can connect an on-premises data center to your cloud SDDC, and manage both from a single vSphere Client interface.
