New to vCenter - one vCenter or one per location?

Really just a lab environment for now, but hoping to deploy something one I get the hang of it.

The sites have site to site VPNs between them but the links are slow and somewhat unreliable.

Should I connect the ESXi hosts to a single vCenter instance at the main location or should I put a vCenter at each location on an ESXi host?

Hi ,

I believe  you can have individual vCenter at each site due to the concern with latency issue.

If you are going for once 6.0 its better to have 1psc +1vCenter at remote location.

This is all new licensing. 6.7

So should I just use a single vCenter at the main location?

Thanks.

Using vSphere 6.7, just deploy an embedded VCSA .   One location is probably sufficient, unless you have extremely unreliable network connections.
