How to configure nova with multiple compute drivers?

I installed Redhat OpenStack Platform 7 with 1 controller and 1 compute node.

nova.conf in compute node has 'compute_driver' set to libvirt driver.

I want to configure VCenter driver in addition to the libvirt driver in the same compute node.

Is this possible?

If not, is there a way to run 2 nova-compute services ( one with libvirt driver and the other with vcenter driver)?

Note: Cinder supports multi backend in the same cinder.conf file, so, I am looking for a similar solution for nova
