VMware Skyline Collector and Advisor - Need help

I am looking to deploy VMware Skyline Collector in my VMware environment, however I've few doubts. Please help clarify those.

- Can a single Skyline appliance instance serve to multiple vCenter servers?

- Is Skyline Advisor a part of Skyline collector? Or is it integrated within Skyline collector? Or do I need to deploy them seperately?

Thank you.

Thank you so much!

Hello Kpjangid​,

Welcome to skyline communities!

Yes, Single appliance instance can serve multiple vCenter servers if they are on the same geographical site. If not we do advice to install a separate collector for each geo site.

Skyline is a SAAS offering and Advisor is hosted by VMware CSP. You will be accessing it over the internet.

Thank you so much for clarifications, Ajay.

Your answer looks perfect, however I am exploring & studying the Skyline. If I will need any further clarifications, I will ask in this same thread.

Thank you so much!
