Multiple vCenter Servers can connect to the same external Platform Service Controller. Enhanced Linked Mode enables a consolidated management view of multiple vCenter Servers configured to use the Platform Services Controller domain. This includes a common inventory where an administrator can search for objects across vCenter Servers. Roles, permissions, licenses, and other key data across systems are also replicated across vCenter instances.
This single pane-of-glass view provides enterprise-level scale and works particularly well in large, multiple VxRail cluster environments or when the VxRail system joins an existing large vSphere environment. In addition, Enhanced Link Mode also enables capabilities such as Cross vCenter vMotion where VMs can be moved between vCenters.
Enhanced Linked Mode is supported with VxRail when running an externally hosted vCenter with VxRail and utilizing external PSC.
