The ASM is able to host one or more Virtual Machine (VM) instances. A VM hosts 3rd party software or runs the Cloud Connector Edition developed by Microsoft. A VM instance is created by logging into the ASM via Remote Desktop Connection and running the Microsoft Hyper-V management platform. Each VM is operated and configured through ASM WebUI options and Hyper-V.

Through the ASM Virtual Machine (VM) WebUI options, the following basic functions are available:

  • Any modifications to the VM via Microsoft Hyper-V are displayed automatically in the WebUI.
  • ASM VM Management is supported on the High-End ASM and Low-End ASM versions. For hardware details, see Common Hardware Modules.
