VMWare hypervisor as compute node?

I've set up a lab environment using KVM on the compute node. But in production I'll probably need to switch to using VMWare. I'm not exactly clear on whether I still need to install compute node(s) to control VMWare or if the controller node can talk directly to the VMWare hypervisors?

In other words can Openstack treat VMWare hypervisor as a compute node directly or does it need an intermediary compute node to talk to it?
