So I’ve been doing a fair bit of thinking lately on what I want my new virtual infrastructure to look like….
I’ve got multiple datacenters, with multiple clusters in each (differing hardware requires that) plus a dedicated VM testlab and I was thinking…. well probably best to have a vcenter in each.
My line of thinking was basically:
- vCenter in each DC (in linked mode?)
- Separate DB’s
- Maybe template it?
- Well the DB should be a VM too
- Need to sortout the startup order…
- Hmm what about a vAPP
Now it seems like a reasonable leap to me, but (correct me if I’m wrong), all the vApp detail is stored in the VCDB, if vCenter is unavailable… will the startup order of the vCenter vAPP work as expected in a HA event?
Time to test it in the testlab I think….
