In a shared protected site configuration, the VMware Site Recovery instances on the protected site connect to the same vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller.

The Site Recovery Manager Server instances on the recovery sites can share vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller instances, or they can connect to a different vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller instances.

In the following example, two Site Recovery Manager Server instances share a vCenter Server instance on each of two shared protected sites. The vCenter Server instances on both of the shared protected sites share a single Platform Services Controller. On the recovery sites in VMware Cloud on AWS, two VMware Site Recovery instances share a vCenter Server instance on each shared recovery site. The vCenter Server instances on both of the shared recovery sites share a single Platform Services Controller.
