Your environment might consist of many vCenter Server instances that are registered with a single Platform Services Controller. You can use vSphere Data Protection to restore a virtual machine that contains a Platform Services Controller. You can also use vSphere Data Protection to restore either virtual machines that contain vCenter Server instances or vCenter Server Appliance instances that are registered with a single external Platform Services Controller.

Note:

If vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller instances fail at the same time, you must first restore the Platform Services Controller and then the vCenter Server instances.
