ncreased virtual machine maximums

As is often the case when VMware releases a major new edition of ESX/ESXi/vSphere, you can now build ever-larger virtual machines due to an increase in the maximum virtual hardware that can be assigned to a virtual machine. Again, some of the maximums are dependent on specific editions of vSphere so if youíre using Standard, you wonít be able to scale like you would if you were using Enterprise Plus.

That said, vSphere 5 brings a lot to the table by enabling even the most intensive tier 1 applications to be virtualized by allowing up to 32 vCPUs to be assigned to a single virtual machine when using Enterprise Plus. The Standard and Enterprise editions of vSphere 5 support up to eight vCPUs per virtual machine.

Itís useful to understand just how scalable things can be with vSphere 5. The table below gives you a look at some of the key maximums found in both individual virtual machines for each of three vSphere editions as well as key maximums information for vSphere hosts themselves.
