A placement zone is a set of hosts and the resources available in a placement zone are the sum of all the resources of the hosts inside it. Each placement is assigned to a placement zone in Containers for vRealize Automation. More than one placement can manage a single placement zone.

The placements that manage a placement zone cannot collectively reserve more resources than those available in the pool.

When a container is provisioned, the placements are filtered based on the business group, available resources, and priority.
