More customers are moving workload to Public Cloud infrastructure and expect to extend VMware SD-WAN™ from remote sites to public cloud to guarantee SLA. There are multiple options offered by VMware, leveraging distributed VMware SD-WAN Gateways to establish IPSec towards public cloud private network or deploy virtual edge directly in AliCloud.

This document illustrates the high-level workflow of the following two topologies to deploy a virtual VMware SD-WAN Edge (vVCE) on AliCloud:


  • Ensure you have an Alibaba Cloud account and login information for the Alibaba Cloud Console.
  • Ensure you have the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator host name and admin account to login.
