This section provides an overview of the VMware SD-WAN™ and VMware Cloud on AWS Deployment Guide.

VMware Cloud on AWS delivers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud solution that extends on-premises vSphere environments to a VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) elastic, bare-metal infrastructure that is fully integrated as part of AWS. It serves a broad range of customer use cases including cloud migration, data center extension, DR and next-generation application modernization. With VMware SD-WAN Support for VMware Cloud on AWS, users at branches or remote locations can have a better network connectivity to workloads deployed on VMware Cloud on AWS leveraging the distributed hosted VMware SD-WAN Cloud Gateways. This deployment guide provides details on how to achieve this connectivity between an SD-WAN Gateway and VMware Cloud Gateway.

The figure below illustrates the Integration of VMware SD-WAN and VMware Cloud on AWS, which uses IPSec connectivity between the VMware SD-WANGateway and the VMware Cloud to Router.
