For vCloud Air, you can order a direct network connection between your premises or colocation center and a vCloud Air region. Using a direct network connection ensures a degree of dedicated bandwidth to a Dedicated Cloud and a Virtual Private Cloud.

In vCloud Air, route traffic from your virtual machines through your direct network connection.

Note

Read this section when you have ordered Direct Connect from VMware for your vCloud Air instance. If you are not a Direct Connect customer, you will not see a Direct Connect network in your vCloud Air Web console.
