Add VMCloudOnAWS into on premises vCloud Director

Hi team!

Please clarify is it possible to add vCenter from VMCloudOnAWS to on premises vCloud Director?
The expected behavior is that a provider VDC will be backed by the VMCloudOnAWS vCenter.

The planned configuration is smth. like this:

- Deploy on premises vCenter;

- Deploy the appliance to connect ot VMCloudOnAWS;

- Add the VMCloudOnAWS to on premises vCloud Director;

- Create a provider VDC backed by VMCloudOnAWS;

Unfortunately I could not find the answer anywhere else.

Thanks in advance.

If you want to add a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC into vCD, this is only possible with the SaaS version of vCD called "Cloud Director Service".

Note that you can still leverage your existing on premises vCD and link it to the SaaS service on top to get an hybrid approach: manage your on prem and Cloud (VMC).

Hope that helps!
