    vCenter is different entity which isn't a hyper-visor, so it doesn't have vmkernel, vmkernel is the heart of ESXI hypervisor which handles all important network, storage and compute functions on ESXI. For deep understanding, please refers to vSphere Documentation Center

That’s what host management....
