As part of a VxRail deployment, a vCenter Server instance with an external PSC is configured. The vCenter Server and the PSC are separate Linux-based virtual appliances. Both the VxRail vCenter Server and PSC are deployed on the VxRail cluster they are managing and cannot be moved off the cluster after deployment.
The VxRail vCenter license is a standard vCenter license for the VxRail vCenter Server. It is not transferable to be used for a customer-supplied vCenter Server. As such, it can be considered a limited or restricted use vCenter Server license.
A VxRail vCenter Server is an ideal choice for:
Note: Stretched clusters are not recommended because if an Inter-Switch Link (ISL) failure occurs and site-affinity rule is used (PFTT=0), all virtual machines that are not on the same site as the vCenter will be powered off.
It cannot be used as a customer-supplied vCenter Server.
