VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager (MHM)

VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager (MHM) is a free component of vCenter Standard Edition that provides support for multiple hypervisors in vCenter Server.

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.

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.
