2.1. Virtuozzo Automator Components Overview¶
Virtuozzo Automator consists of the following main components:
VA Management Node, ensures communication between slave servers (see further) and virtual environments hosted on them. The server where the VA Management Node is installed is called the master server.
VA Control Center, provides the web-based GUI that enables users to manage Virtuozzo physical servers and virtual environments hosted on them. The VA Control Center is a part of the VA Management Node and is installed together with it.
VA Agent, ensures interaction between the physical server it’s installed on, the Master Server, and client computer from which a user logs in to the Control Center. The VA Agent is installed on physical servers running Virtuozzo 6 or 7 which are called slave servers. Only Virtuozzo physical servers that have Agent installed can be registered with the master server (and managed from the Control Center).
