Supported Hypervisors and Containers List

If you were looking for how-to instructions to get started with Hypervisor, Linux (*nix), or Windows discovery, see either:
– The Windows / Hyper-V Discovery Page
– or The Linux / UNIX server auto-discovery page.

Supported Hypervisor / Container Platforms

Device42 is constantly expanding its list of hypervisor and container platforms supported by auto-discovery. For instructions on how to configure and run these discovery jobs, please refer to Hypervisor Autodiscovery. The list of supported platforms currently includes the following:
