VMware Deprecating External PSC

With the release of vSphere 6.7 and vSphere 6.5 update 2 VMware has announced the Enhanced Linked Mode support for VCSA with embedded platform services controller and in future release (not update) they will no longer provide an option to deploy the external PSC.  This allows less pain for VMware administrators as the deployments, upgrades are become much easier and less nodes in the environment as most of the vCenter components are now merged in to single appliance.
So, what are the options ?

VMware has introduced a convergence utility with vSphere 6.7 U1 which is command line utility and with the release of vSphere 6.7 U2 they have introduced the GUI utility as well. So if you are running VCSA with external platform services controller you have to upgrade the environment to at least 6.7U1 and the converge all your external PSCs to embedded PSCs.

Update vCenter 6.7.x
