HP ProLiant Virtual Console (PVC) is an HP-developed tool that allows users to set up and manage a virtualized server. The intuitive user interface starts on the local console from the time the server initially boots up. Users can create virtual machines, install software for those virtual machines, and manage VMs and resources from the console. While the virtual machines are running, the user can also interact with each virtual machine by using a hot-key to select it, similar to a KVM switch; it even allows users to interact with up to 4 or 9 VMs on the screen at the same time. Since PVC uses the standard local console, the entire experience can also be run remotely using the virtual console feature of Integrated Lights-Out Advanced or through a standard external KVM switch. PVC complements the single-server or multi-server remote management capabilities that virtualization vendors supply by also offering a console that does not require a separate networked client. PVC is currently bundled with select HP-delivered licenses of Citrix XenServer.
