Managing Instances

An instance is a Polycom video infrastructure component (network device) that runs on a virtual machine or a hardware appliance.

When you add a component to the RealPresence Resource Manager system, you can choose to use RealPresence Resource Manager to monitor the alarms, manage licensing for the components, or/and integrate this component with the RealPresence Resource Manager system. You can add both virtual and appliance edition products as instances in RealPresence Resource Manager.

If you work under vCenter environment, see Appendix A: Working in a vCenter Environment on how to manage instances, images, and providers.
