Two dedicated resources can be billed hourly as an option:

  • host servers
  • datastores

In the vSphere web client, simply go to the "Host and Cluster" section, and open the tree-view on the left-hand side. You can then access the plugin menus via the Configure tab for the datacentre or the cluster.

The Add Host menu is dedicated to host servers. You can view their technical details and order new host servers here.
