VMware Cloud on AWS provides different host types for use in your SDDC.
A given cluster in your SDDC must contain hosts of the same type.
Some host types might not be available within a particular region or availability zone.
- The I3 host type is the default host type. I3 hosts have 36 cores, 512GiB RAM, and 10.37TiB raw storage capacity per host.
- The I3en host type is optimized for data-intensive workloads. I3en hosts have 96 logical cores, 768GiB RAM, and approximately 45.84 TiB raw storage capacity per host. Single-host SDDCs cannot contain the I3en host type.
