Primary Site - Virtualized
This is what the example system with VMs on three hosts looks like:
The abbreviations are HS1 = Host Server 1, LB1 = Load Balancer 1, WS1 = Web Server 1, AS1 = Application Server 1, MS1 = Mediation Server 1.
The following chart shows the processor assignment-workload association. This distribution is similar to the suggested expansion workload distribution.
The limiting factor in these configurations in the number of processors/cores available for assigning to the appropriate VM workloads. Since these machines have potential capacity to spare, we provide no further specific discussion of RAM requirements.
