HCM provides the data plane to build the tunnel between your on-premises workloads to the cloud with the help of Cloud Gateway (CGW). You must install HCM on your vCenter and configure it to work with the vSphere Replication appliance so that all the replication traffic, regardless of the target site, will go through the HCM CGW and WAN optimization appliances.
