Chapter 12Balancing Resource Utilization

A fundamental element of virtualization with VMware vSphere is the ability to increase the utilization of your computing resources within a single physical host. vSphere accomplishes this by letting you run multiple instances of a guest operating system (OS) on a single physical host in virtual machines (VMs).
