What are the Components of a VMware vSphere Data Center?

A VMware vSphere data center can include a combination of the following components: ESXi hosts, storage networks and arrays, vCenter Server, and management clients.

ESXi hosts are bare metal hypervisors that run on x86 servers and manage virtual machines (VMs). Each server can have multiple network adapters, which provide high bandwidth to the server and reliable networking for the data center as a whole.

Storage networks and arrays can include Fibre Channel SAN arrays, iSCSI SAN arrays and NAS arrays. They allow you to connect and share storage across groups of servers.

The vCenter Server provides a central point of management and control within the data center. With it, you can provision, configure and monitor your vSphere components. You can also unify resources from servers so that VMs can share them.

Finally, vSphere management clients provide user interfaces for the vCenter Server. They include a web client and a command-line interface.
