VMware Cloud Hybrid Linked mode first look

At VMworld Vegas, VMware announced availability of hybrid linked mode for vCenter. This allows you to view and manage both your on-prem vSphere environment as well as your SDDC in VMware Cloud on AWS. Let’s take a look at this awesome new feature! NOTE: Although similar, this is not vCenter Linked Mode or Enhanced Linked mode.

Requirements and Limitations for Hybrid Linked Mode

Currently, the following requirements and limitations apply for Hybrid Linked Mode.

  • You can link a cloud SDDC to an on-premises data center running vSphere 6.5 patch d and later.
  • You can link a cloud SDDC to only one on-premises data center.
  • Only an embedded Platform Services Controller configuration is supported for the on-premises data center.


Forget logging into two vCenter Clients! Now you can login once for a seamless experience.

Enabling Hybrid Linked mode is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Simply go to the administration tab and follow the guide

In just a few minutes, your good to go!

Enjoy using the world’s first true hybrid cloud!
