A Hypervisor is a service that creates and runs virtual machines (VMs), providing them compute and storage resources. The hypervisor treats on-prem resources such as CPU, memory, and storage as a pool that can be easily reallocated between existing guests or to new virtual machines. 

When you connect Turbonomic to hypervisor targets, it recommends placement and resize actions for VMs and the underlying infrastructure.
