What's New on VMware Cloud on AWS: April 5, 2022 (SDDC v1.18 Release)
Another major release with this latest update that includes a lot of improvements and new features especially at the network level!
VMware Cloud on AWS Multi CGW
This feature enables customers to create additional CGWs (Compute Gateways or Tier-1 Gateways) and manage the life cycle for those CGWs. Customer managed CGWs can be created as Routed, NAT'ed or Isolated CGWs. This feature will support addition of static routes, route aggregation, filtering, local DHCP server or DNS forwarding, and Traceflow. This feature will enable the following use cases:
Multi-tenancy within an SDDC
Overlapping IPv4 address space across CGWs
Gateway Firewall/ NAT scoped to individual CGWs
Support for static routes on customer managed CGW
Access to the Connected VPC from customer managed CGW
Deployment of Isolated test 'segments’ for Disaster Recovery (DR) testing or “sandbox” environments.
Route Aggregation for Advertisement over Direct Connect & Transit Connect
VMware Cloud on AWS support for AD/LDAP
Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) Services
Customers can now enable Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) Services on existing SDDCs and clusters on VMware Cloud on AWS and VMware Cloud on Dell EMC. There is no longer a need to create new SDDCs or new Clusters, allowing customers to leverage their existing environments.
