Vcenter explained

Could any of the virtualisation experts give a real management type top level summary of what role "Vcenter" does/plays in a companies virtualisation setup. Would much rather a comment in human freindly (i.e. newbie to virtualisation terminology) as opposed to a link.

Not exactly sure what you are looking for but VMware vCenter Server provides a centralized management console for vSphere hosts and virtual machines (VMs).

Let me know if this is what you are looking for or perhaps have other questions
