Core/CPU recomendations for VMs
Posted on 2014-09-30
When others receive build specs for new systems (Windows Servers on vSphere) how do you spec out the CPU for a VM? Say you receive a spec of Two (2) Six-core Xeon (12 cores total) do you build a VM with 12 vCPUs? What about potential CPU wait issues?
Or, do you just build a 4 vCPU and make sure it's running on a host with Two (2) Six-core Xeon (12 cores total)?
When we ask vendors about visualizing we often get different or non-committal answers, so wondering what others do?
