Virtualization Management Module

Farm

A Farm (or cluster) is a group of Hypervisors pooled together and sharing storage resources to provide an overall fault tolerant system for hosting Virtual Machines.

Creating a new Farm

Click on the “Overview” menu:

And click on “Create a new Farm” in the dashboard:

To display the following form:

Relations

  • Impacts: a Farm impacts its Virtual Machines, the Application Solutions which this Farm is part of and all the contacts (Persons, Teams) directly linked to the Farm.
  • Depends on: a Farm depends on the related Hypervisors and Logical Volumes.

Hypervisor

An hypervisor is a virtualization software (MS Hyper-V, VMWare ESX, Xen, etc.), running on a physical Server and supporting the creation of Virtual Machines.
