The NSX Public Cloud Gateway (PCG) provides north-south connectivity between the public cloud and the on-prem management components of NSX-T Data Center.
|Public Cloud||PCG instance type|
Note: Some regions may not support the C4.xlarge instance type. Refer to AWS documentation for details.
|Microsoft Azure||Standard DS3 v.2|
- Management subnet: This subnet is used for management traffic between on-prem NSX-T Data Center and PCG. The recommended range is /28.
- Uplink subnet: This subnet is used for north-south internet traffic. The recommended range is /24.
- Downlink subnet: This subnet encompasses the workload VM's IP address range, and should be sized accordingly. Bear in mind that you may need to incorporate additional interfaces on the workload VMs for debugging purposes.
Compute VPC or VNet: VPCs or VNets that do not have the PCG deployed on them but link to a Transit VPC or VNet are called Compute VPCs or VNets.
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.
