vCenter Server with external PSC & security

Hi all,

When looking at the deployment of vCenter Server with an external Platform Services Controller from the design point of view, are there any security pro's - con's when using this architecture?

What do you think guys? Any thoughts?

No one? Smiley Happy

I got some from a discussion with guys on twitter so if you are interested, I created a quick blog about it.

Cheers!

"This upgrade procedure described the upgrade process of the vCenter Server Appliance with an embedded Platform Services Controller (PSC) but doesn’t provide an upgrade or migration process if you want to deploy the vCenter Server Appliance with an external Platform Services Controller."

Hey Marek, I was told by my SE today that vSphere 6 U1 will support this upgrade method (appliance embedded to external PSC).  It should be out in Q3.
