Starting with vSphere v7.0, external Platform Services Controller (PSC) is deprecated. The only option is vCenter Server with embedded Platform Services Controller (PSC).
- The new vCenter Server contains all PSC services, preserving the functionality and workflows, including authentication, certificate management, tags, and licensing.
- The vCenter Server group of services contains vCenter Server, vSphere Web Client, Inventory Service, vSphere Auto Deploy, vSphere ESXi Dump Collector, VMware vSphere Syslog Collector on Windows, and VMware Sphere Syslog Service for the vCenter Server appliance.
Starting with VxRail 7.0.100, Enhanced Link Mode (ELM) is supported on embedded VxRail vCenters.
