With the End of Availability of vCenter Server Heartbeat we had many questions around what our recommendations are for protecting vCenter Server. With the help of Anil Kapur and Justin King we’ve got a pretty solid paper that discusses what availability is, and how to best protect vCenter Server and all of its components along with its backend databases.
