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

The Site Recovery Manager Server instances on the protected sites can connect to vCenter Server instances that share a Platform Services Controller or that each connect to a different Platform Services Controller.

In the following example, the Site Recovery Manager Server instances on the protected sites connect to a single Platform Services Controller instance that two vCenter Server instances share.
