VMM is a series of components that include Windows Server, SQL Server, a local agent, an Administrative console, and a self-service console. The components that make up VMM include

• A Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP1 or later server on which the VMM service (server component) is installed.

• A Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database. This database contains all VMM objects.

• Servers on which the VMM local agent is installed. These servers act as hosts on which to deploy VMs using VMM. A host computer runs Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2, Virtual Server 2005 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1), or Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V.

• Servers on which the VMM local agent is installed that act as library servers. Library servers store resources for the VMM environment.

• Computers on which the VMM Administrative console is installed. These computers or servers provide the administrative GUI and command shell to manage the physical and virtual infrastructure.

• Web servers that act as self-service portals. Self-service portals allow designated users to create/manage their own VMs.
