The Hybrid Cloud Manager plug-in is deployed on-premises only. It manages the service virtual appliances for the SD-WAN.

The Hybrid Cloud Manager virtual appliance is an extension to your vCenter. It is deployed as a virtual machine. The Hybrid Cloud Manager appliance file structure contains all the hybrid service virtual appliances. The Hybrid Cloud Manager oversees the deployment and configuration of the Cloud Gateway, the Layer 2 Concentrators, and WAN Optimization virtual appliance both on-premises and in the cloud.

When you install the Hybrid Cloud Manager virtual appliance, you can select thin or thick provisioning for the hard drive. By default, hard drives for the service virtual appliances are thinly provisioned.

After the service virtual appliance configuration and deployment is done, you log in to this virtual machine to use the Hybrid Cloud Manager Management Portal.
