VMware vROps - EPOps Multi-vCenter Monitoring Dashboard

Since the EPOps vCenter Monitoring Dashboard is one of the most popular posts on the blog, I thought it would be a good idea to update this highly demanded dashboard to work with multiple vCenters. A lot of sizable enterprises out there have multiple vCenter instances with thousands of hosts and tens of thousands of VMs. Also, with the introduction of vSphere 6, more customers have begun their migration journey away from Windows-based vCenter servers to vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) and everything in-between, including a mix of both solutions. Since vROps enables you to have a unified single pane of glass view across your entire environment regardless of locations or versions, you can leverage it to create a dashboard to keep an eye on all of your vCenter servers. This can include both Windows and VCSA versions of vCenter, as well as SSO and PSC if they have been separated out. Heck, you can even include the MS SQL server hosting the vCenter database if you want.
