By using a leased line from your service provider, you can connect your on-premises data center to an Alibaba Cloud access point to build hybrid clouds and expand your local network.
Physical connection process
As shown in the following figure, after connecting your on-premises data center to the nearest Alibaba Cloud access point through a leased line from your service provider, you need to create a VBR for the leased line as a router between the local Customer-Premises Equipment (CPE) and the VPC. Then, you need to add the VBR to the Cloud Enterprise Network, or establish a peering connection between the VBR and the VPC so that the on-premises data center can communicate with other VPCs.
To establish a physical connection, you must first connect the leased line to an access point.
