We want to implement Nutanix Leap On premise between two clusters. The two cluster are installed on different locations (4km between the two sites).

The two clusters are intented to be active, so each cluster must replicate VMs to each other (Cluster A → Cluster B and Cluster B → Cluster A)

As per the documentation, we need an instance of Prism central on each site, which represents an Availability Zone.

For easy management purposes, we want to be able to manage all the 2 clusters from a single pane of glass; is it possible to have a third Prism central instance to manage all these 2 clusters ?

How this could be implemented?

@Ange Unfortunately, any Prism Element (PE) cluster can only be registered to one Prism Central (PC). Considering that you are planning to use Leap On-Prem for 2 PE clusters which are installed on different datacenter locations, hence two Prism Centrals (one PE cluster will be registered to one PC respectively) will be needed, each deployed and registered to their respective PE cluster.

Since the PE clusters are already be registered to their individual PC instances, hence there cannot be any third PC instance that can be registered to these PE clusters.
