If your VMware Cloud on AWS Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is located within the United States (US region), you can deploy and use a Cloud Assembly agent in your VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC. The agent facilitates the connection between the SDDC and a VMware Cloud on AWS cloud account that you create in vRealize Automation Cloud.

The Cloud Assembly agent simplifies vRealize Automation Cloud trial activation from a US region-based VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC. This reduces the time it takes for you to start leveraging vRealize Automation Cloud for automating your VMware Cloud on AWS workloads.

An API token and vCenter credentials are not required for VMC SDDCs that reside in a US region.

The cloud proxy VM is not required for VMC SDDCs that reside in a US region.

If your SDDC is located outside of the United States (non-US region), see Create a VMware Cloud on AWS cloud account in vRealize Automation Cloud in the workflow.
