VMware AWS - Proximity Routing

Hi

Would like to check if VMware on AWS (VMC) does support proximity routing with HCX.

I see no reason why it should not be, but I have not tested it myself.

It has been support for the last several releases.  It has not been certified for docker/containers yet.  We've had a few issues with private networks.

the below article dated 12/12/2019  states that it is not supported

At the time, of this writing, the VMC cloud cannot be configured to meet the VMware HCX-PR requirements.

I do confirm, Proximity routing is not supported (for the moment) in VMC with our embedded HCX.

Hi vdavid,

Proximity routing newly renamed "Mobility optimized networking" is embedded into HCX including HCX provided with VMC. 
And yes, VMC leverages NSX-T.

Any questions?

thank you

I run into the lack of proximity routing during my PoC in early 2022. I knew it was released starting 2021 under the name "mobility optimized networking". So I ran again into this topic during my "VMware Cloud on AWS - Install, Configure and Manage" course and I was ablte to test the functionality. I can confirm its working as it should and it is easy to configure.
