vCenter Chargeback Scaling
Configure additional installations of vCenter Chargeback server to connect with the built-in load balancer that is included in the first instance.
The load balancer spreads load from requests across multiple vCenter Chargeback servers.
Multiple instances can be installed and configured separately. First instance is installed with vCenter Chargeback server (option selected).
Multiple data collectors can populate a single vCenter Chargeback database. The load is evenly distributed if multiple data collectors are enabled.
vCenter Chargeback virtual machines can be deployed as a two-node, load-balanced cluster. Multiple vCenter Chargeback data collectors can be deployed remotely to avoid a single point of failure.
These deployments have no effect on infrastructure availability or customer virtual machines. Configuring vCenter Chargeback servers in a cluster configuration ensures that providers can accurately produce customer billing information and usage reports. Configuring vCenter Chargeback in a cluster configuration is not required for maintaining workload accessibility.
