VMware Cloud on AWS Pricing
How much does it cost for a year. In case if you want to be the permanent member, how much they will charge then?

Hi Elle
How much the service costs really depends on how much you consume and for how long.

You can find additional info here: https://cloud.vmware.com/vmc-aws/pricing?src=ps_601a82f03f130&cid=7012H000001KVQI&gclsrc=ds

The above web page includes a lot of info on the service including a pricing calculator to help you get a better idea based on how much the service could cost based on your capacity requirements.
The service can be consumed in a 'Pay as you go' manner or on a 1 or 3-year subscription basis.
Hope this helps :)

Hi, I have the following error message during the import process.

Beginning Services import...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "c:\Temp\Python\sddc_import_export\sddc_import_export.py", line 561, in <module>
main(sys.argv[1:])

File "c:\Temp\Python\sddc_import_export\VMCImportExport.py", line 804, in importSDDCServices
modified_entry["l4_protocol"] = entry["l4_protocol"]
KeyError: 'l4_protocol'

Do you have any ideas?

best regards

I would like to know if I can use the export/import as a template. In my case I have to deploy multiple SDDCs in the same region as well as different regions. Can I export one SDDC, Change some of the parameters (network segments, IP addresses,...) and then import this to brand new SDDCs? have you tested if this works?

Hello! Yes, absolutely you can use the export/import as a template and modify it offline. After all, the output of the tool is just a bunch of JSON files and you can add/remove entries (with care!). We have tested this and it worked fine.

As a reminder, regarding the public IP addresses: you could either skip the import or import their associated description and NAT rules. So that, in your scenario, all SDDCs will have similar NAT rules (but obviously with different public IPs).

Happy to discuss it directly if you contact us through LinkedIn or Twitter.

I do not see the SDDC vCenter folder structure backed up on the export.

Is this something you are working on ? or am I missing something.

Thank you for your work on this fling it helps out a lot.

This functionality was released today in v1.4

Hi Sal - thanks for checking out the Fling. There is no current support for vCenter folders, though there are a number of PowerCLI scripts out there to do so. We will certainly consider adding some vCenter-specific items if there is customer demand.
