Hypervisors provide hosting for virtual machines. You can include hypervisors for different virtualization platforms in the same Admin Console implementation:

  • Amazon: The hypervisor represents an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account.
  • Google Cloud Platform: A hypervisor represents a Google Cloud service account.
  • Microsoft Azure - Classic: A hypervisor represents an Azure subscription.

    Microsoft Azure - Resource Manager: A hypervisor represents an application.

  • Microsoft Azure Stack: A hypervisor represents an Azure subscription.
  • Microsoft Hyper-V: A hypervisor represents a Hyper-V cluster, a Hyper-V server in a cluster, or a standalone Hyper-V server.
  • Nutanix Acropolis AHV: A hypervisor represents a Nutanix cluster.
  • OpenStack: A hypervisor represents a keystone node in an OpenStack deployment.
  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic: A hypervisor represents an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic endpoint.
  • Oracle VM: A hypervisor represents an Oracle VM Manager.
  • VMware: A hypervisor represents a vCenter or a standalone ESX server.

The main Hypervisors page shows all of the hypervisors in your environment. You can click on any hypervisor to get summary information, or click on a Jobs link in the Actions column to check the status of jobs for a hypervisor. Some users may only have access to specific hypervisors for which they are responsible.

For each hypervisor, you can define VM groups (collections of virtual machines) that you want to manage separately. For example, you can put virtual machines in different VM groups so that you can have different backup criteria or schedules for different classes of virtual machines.
