As part of a VxRail deployment, a vCenter Server instance with embedded PSC is configured. The vCenter Server and the PSC are hosted on a single Linux-based virtual machine. The vCenter Server with embedded PSC is deployed on the VxRail cluster it is 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) fails 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.
On first run in VxRail versions earlier than 7.0.100 for VxRail-managed vCenter Servers.
Between a VxRail-managed vCenter Server and customer-supplied vCenter Server.
As a Day 2 operation (repoint) in VxRail versions earlier than 7.0.200 for VxRail-managed vCenter Servers.
