VMware has introduced the “vRAM” licensing concept with vSphere 5. The vRAM is the amount of memory you can allocate to your virtual machines running on an ESXi host. If you have a 2 x socket host running Enterprise+ licenses you will be able to allocate 96GB + 96GB = 192GB to your virtual machines. If you on the same host were running Standard licenses you would only be allowed to allocate 32GB + 32GB = 64GB of memory. The table sums of the different vRAM entitlements:
Free ESXi 32GB
I have one question, if i have 192GB vRAM entitlement, does it mean my host should have 192GB of actual RAM?
