This section addresses memory considerations in the guest operating system.

As described in 2MB Large Memory Pages for Hypervisor and Guest Operating System, VMware Cloud on AWS can make large memory pages available to the guest operating system.

If an operating system or application can benefit from large pages on a native system, that operating system or application can potentially achieve a similar performance improvement on a virtual machine backed with 2MB machine memory pages. Consult the documentation for your operating system and application to determine how to configure each of them to use large memory pages.
