One of my client is asking
What's the different between Virtual Center and VCenter server??
As I understood, the service console for the Virtula center has been removed out, am I right? Then, how about VCenter server? What kind of "technology" is use by it?
Thanks a lot!
vCenter Server was previously known as VMware VirtualCenter Server
VMware vCenter Server 4 is a component of VMware vSphere 4.0.
There is service console for ESX hosts. Please go through the below links to get more idea about vCenter Server and ESX hosts:

As mentioned by the other poster - vCenter and VirtualCenter are the same - it's just a name change and is now known as vCenter
In regards to service console - this is the management layer on ESX. However, ESXi has no service console - all the management is done via the vmkernel instead.
