How many virtual servers can VMware 3.5 support... on a software level.
i can throw endless physical resources and increase my esx cluster, add more ram, etc.  
but how many servers can vmware itself handle.  at the moment i am running 90.

Well the most interesting feature is fault tolerance(FT). vSphere can give more vhardware to VMs. Now you can add up to 8 vCPUs to a single VM, previously was limited to four. The new RAM limit is 255GB from 64GB. The ESX hosts themselves can now support up to 64 cores and 512GB RAM. Plus few others in terms of max config supported.

Cheers!

Yes, but the only problem is your need enterprise plus licences for 8vcpu option (my company has decided VMWare is costing too much) .. time to look at Xen and the others ... :(
