For a single host availability for vCenter is not required, because the vCenter environment management system virtualization in which many hosts (from several pieces to several thousand pieces). To study the work of the vCenter it can certainly deliver, but with bonuses it will not.

vCenter is placed either on the Windows machine (from the attached iso) or VCSA (Service application) - a ready-made virtual reality and which is configured almost the same as the Hyper - initial setup from the console, then webmerge.

Means backup in vCenter no. vCenter management environment. And nothing more.
Same as vSphere? There is also no way to create backups? - mossie.Hand commented on March 12th 20 at 08:13
@mossie.Hand, Backup is usually done via snapshots and with the use of third-party solutions. in VmWare is generally not tiered back-up solutions - they left that to the people who are constantly engaged in. I use HP and Nakivo VM Explorer, but it all paid solutions, Nakivo generally, the sockets licensed. - Amalia.Hayes commented on March 12th 20 at 08:16

If I'm not mistaken, this is not Vcenter virtualization system is a software which is installed on the operating system and not on bare metal, so it is not bootable.
So mount/extract the contents of this image in some folder and run the installer.
The installation wizard guides you through the stages and at the output you will need a vcenter server to which you can connect with vsphere to manage your hypervisors and configure everything you need.

Here is a good article, you need mode Embeded PSC, as the infrastructure is small. Size is best to choose small.
First you need to install the vSphere hypervisor
