NSX-T Multisite solution is perfect for customers who want a "Smaller NSX-T Management Footprint" (with only 3x NSX-T Mgr VMs for all their locations), and accept a "DR Recovery Procedure with few more requirements or steps".
For other use cases, NSX-T 3.0 introduced a second Multi-Location solution: NSX-T Federation.
NSX-T Federation solution is based on a new component: “NSX-T Global Manager Cluster” (GM).
GM offers a central global configuration of multiple (local) NSX-T Manager Cluster, each offering Network & Security services for a Location.
NSX-T Federation solution replies to "Specific Site Management/ GDPR/ Policy Requirements", and offers "Simplified DR".
