Inventory objects in the vSphere Client include folders, datacenters, clusters, resource pools, datastores, and networks. These objects are used to help manage or organize monitored and managed hosts, as well as virtual machines.

Each object in the vSphere Client has a particular place in the overall object hierarchy. An object’s position in the hierarchy is determined by the object’s functionality.

An object's name must be unique with its parent. vApp names must be unique within the Virtual Machines and Templates view.
