Hi all,
I am newbie in vmware and I want understand it as deep, so I have question about :
"Thick Provision Eager Zeroed – the space required for the virtual disk is allocated during the disk creation. The space is zeroed out when the disk is created.

Thick Provision Lazy Zeroed – this is the default disk type. Space required for the virtual disk is allocated during creation. The space is zeroed on command on the first write from the virtual machine. "


 Can you explain  simply  zeroed out and what do it?

Thanks,
