We are using ESXi 4.1 as our vmhost and we are limited to about 4 VM's per 
host.  This is mainly due to the fact that our vm's are running on local disks 
(not network storage) so we limit it to 4 to try and minimize the I/O on the 
disks (for performance).

Subject: Max Number of VMs per Host


What is the number of VMs do you all run per VMware host? Is it limited to the 
RAM limitation for vSphere 5? How many purchase vSphere licenses?
