Hello Shardy,

Just like right now you are using Compute to fire API requests to KVM using the Libvirt driver (setup in the nova.conf) similarly you will continue to use the Compute to fire API requests to the VMware hypervisor using VMWare's drivers, which are already provided in the nova installation.

And in a prod environment you will see that vCenter is used for orchestration and you will be levering it for HA and such and configuring Nova for the same, else if you would just like to use try out openstack on vmware, you can use the ESXi hypervisor directly too and the driver for this is also available in the standard nova installation by default. Hope this clarifies.

Cheers! Venu
