Hybrid Cloud Manager supports a many-to-many relationship between on-premises vCenters and vCloud Air virtual data centers. vCenter Server in Linked Mode is supported. This topic provides a high-level overview of how the installer interacts with both the on-premises data center and the vCloud Air virtual data center.

During the installation, the Hybrid Cloud Manager virtual appliance is imported and configured as a plug-in for the on-premises vCenter. You then use the plug-in to configure the Software-Defined WAN service deployment. The automated configuration provisions each hybrid service appliance as a virtual machine in your on-premises vCenter, and deploys a corresponding virtual machine in your vCloud Air virtual data center.

To successfully deploy you must have:

Sufficient resources for the virtual appliances.

Your network must permit the appliances to communicate with both local and remote virtual appliances, and other virtual machines.
