VMware: Multi-Hypervisor Management is Here
This week VMware announced the release of vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager. As per the VMware release notes
” VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager is a component that enables support for heterogeneous hypervisors in VMware vCenter Server. It provides the following benefits to your virtual environment:
- An integrated platform for managing VMware and third-party hypervisors from a single interface.
- A hypervisor choice for the different business units in your organization to accommodate their specific needs.
- No single hypervisor vendor lock-in.
When you add a third-party host to vCenter Server, all virtual machines that exist on the host are discovered automatically, and are added to the third-party hosts inventory. “
As of now the supported non VMware Hypervizor is Only the Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.
