Networking for Cloud Sync includes connectivity between the data broker and the source and target locations, and outbound communication from the data broker to Cloud Sync over port 443.

Data broker in the cloud

The following image shows the data broker running in the cloud, in either AWS, GCP, or Azure. The source and target can be in any location, as long as there’s a connection to the data broker. For example, you might have a VPN connection from your data center to your cloud provider.

When Cloud Sync deploys the data broker in AWS, Azure, or GCP, it creates a security group that enables the required outbound communication.
