A virtualization manager is an integral part of any computing infrastructure that has one or more virtual machines spread across the network. It controls the allocation of underlying compute, memory, network, storage and other services for all the managed virtual machines.
A virtualization manager is implemented over or is part of the parent operating system and integrate easily with popular virtual machine vendors, thus providing the ability to manage virtual machines from different platforms through a central control panel.
