Virtual Devices and Clusters

The Virtual Devices and Clusters page displays the cluster hierarchy of the virtualization infrastructure detected in your organization. A cluster is a group of virtual machine hosts, each hosting one or more virtual machines. IT Asset Management creates cluster records for discovered Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, and Oracle VM clusters when the cluster inventory is collected. You can also create and manage your cluster hierarchy manually if your cluster hierarchy is not detected for any reason.

In addition to the cluster hierarchies, this page also displays the virtualization infrastructure inventory of the following types:
