VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager (MHM)

VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager (MHM) is a vCenter component that provides an integrated platform for managing VMware and third-party hypervisors from a single interface.

Because MHM supports heterogeneous hypervisors in VMware vCenter Server, administrators can choose which hypervisor meets a specific business unit's needs within an organization. When an administrator adds a third-party host to vCenter Server, all virtual machines (VMs)  that exist on the host are discovered automatically and added to the third-party hosts inventory. Administrators can modify permissions, adjust server configurations, provision new VMs, migrate VMs from Hyper-V to ESXi and power hosts off and on.

VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager is the first supported product developed from a VMware fling
