The NSX Public Cloud Gateway (PCG) provides north-south connectivity between the public cloud and the NSX-T Data Center on-prem management components.


  • Your public cloud accounts must be already added into CSM.

  • The VPC or VNet on which you are deploying PCG must have the required subnets appropriately adjusted for High Availability: uplink, downlink, and management.

PCG deployment aligns with your network addressing plan with FQDNs for the NSX-T Data Center components and a DNS server that can resolve these FQDNs.


It is not recommended to use IP addresses for connecting the public cloud with NSX-T Data Center using PCG, but if you choose that option, do not change your IP addresses.
