A physical computer, most often a server, on which one or more virtual machines are installed. Hosts may be work alone, or may be grouped together in clusters for load balancing, fail-over redundancy, and performance improvements.
FlexNet Manager Suite recognizes a variety of virtual machine hosts, including:
  • Servers running the ESXi hypervisor from VMware (previous versions known as ESX)
  • Servers running the Hyper-V hypervisor from Microsoft
  • UNIX-based servers running various kinds of partitions, including VPARs and LPARs, in which processes are running independently (which are also called virtual machines here, for ease of reference)
  • Servers running Citrix Virtual Desktops (formerly XenDesktop) as a VDI broker.
