You can use vSphere Data Protection to back up and restore an environment in which the vCenter Server instances are registered with different Platform Services Controller instances, and the infrastructure data is replicated between the Platform Services Controller instances.

Note

If vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller instances fail at the same time, you must first restore the Platform Services Controller and then the vCenter Server instances.

Your environment might contain multiple vCenter Server instances registered with different external Platform Services Controller instances that replicate their data. You can use vSphere Data Protection for backing up and restoring the whole environment so that if a Platform Services Controller fails, you can restore the failed Platform Services Controller.

Your environment might contain multiple vCenter Server instances registered with different external Platform Services Controller instances that replicate their data. You can use vSphere Data Protection for backing up and restoring the whole environment, so that if several Platform Services Controller instances fail, you can restore them.

Your environment might contain multiple vCenter Server instances registered with different external Platform Services Controller instances that replicate their data. You can use vSphere Data Protection for backing up and restoring the whole environment. If all Platform Services Controller instances fail, you can restore the environment.

Your environment might contain multiple vCenter Server instances registered with different external Platform Services Controller instances, and the infrastructure data is replicated between the Platform Services Controller instances. You can use vSphere Data Protection for backing up and restoring the whole environment so that you can restore any failed vCenter Server instances.
