BYOIP to VMware Cloud on AWS Reference Architecture Published

I recently authored this AWS Reference Architecture which describes how to Bring Your Own IPv4 address to VMware Cloud on AWS using AWS Cloud.

This was driven by AWS customers wanting to migrate hundreds of legacy applications into VMware Cloud on AWS that have a static public IPv4 address constraint. They could not use the DHCP function from Amazon’s pool of public IPv4 addresses that VMware Cloud on AWS supports.
