It is the nova-compute node (which may be either a VM or a physical host) that is referred to by the nova term "host". For KVM, I believe the host is often the same as the hypervisor, meaning that nova-compute runs directly on the hypervisor… but this is not necessarily the case for all virt drivers. For example, the host for Xen-based installations is often a separate VM on the same hypervisor, which would have its own distinct IP address. -- Kevin L.
