VM sizing

I have a cluster of 3 esxi hosts, each host has 2 x 8-core CPU and 256GB RAM; datastore size 6TB.
Is it realistic to run a MS SQL server VM with 16 core, 128GB RAM, and 3TB disk space on this cluster?

Yes, depends on the other free resources you have available.

and do you really require 16 sockets for your VM.
