Use these guidelines when you plan configuration limits for your vApp.

Cloud capacity consumption is calculated using allocated resources, not utilized resources. For example, if you allocate a 100 GB disk to a virtual machine, but the disk contains 50 GB of data, 100 GB of storage is consumed from the storage allocation.

  • Avoid oversizing workloads intended to be used for labs. Idle vCPUs, unused memory, and free disk space are consumed from the capacity allocation, incurring additional costs.

  • Maintain good housekeeping of vApps and templates within the virtual data center.

For trial users, trial capacity is limited to 25 vCPUs | 50 GB RAM | 2500 GB storage unless otherwise noted in your onboarding session. This allows you to deploy the configurations described in the following table.

A vApp that is powered on consumes compute (CPU and memory) and storage resources from the cloud allocation, whereas when powered off, a vApp only consumes storage.
