Resource pools represent a unit of CPU, memory, and storage that are portioned from the shared infrastructure pool. These resource pools are the abstracted pools of resources that tenants consume through Tenant VDCs. The resources of a Tenant VDC, and hence the resources available to tenants, can be scaled by scaling the underlying resource pool to meet future resource demands.

By mapping different Tenant VDCs to different resource pools backed by different vSphere host clusters, CSPs can meet different SLAs as per tenant resource requirements.
