You can add additional gateways to a virtual data center after you create the virtual data center. A gateway provides connectivity to the Internet and also provides networking services such as NAT, firewall protection, load balancing, and IPsec VPN. Virtual machines connect to the gateway through a gateway network.

You can add gateways to virtual data centers in the Dedicated Cloud service only. You cannot add gateways in the Virtual Private Cloud service.

Gateways are created with a compact configuration and have High Availability enabled.

Verify that you have network administrator privileges.
