N1Kv and memory requirements

Hi,

From the Q&A Nexus 1000V below an excerpt of the requirements on ESXi. What I wonder, when I have 50 VEMS (or 50 physical hosts) do I need 2G memory (VSM) and 50*150M or 7.5G for the VEMs, so total 9.5G? Or does the 150M sit as process in the physical hosts?

Thanks

Paul

Hi Paul,


You would be needing only 2GB for VSM, and 150 MB for VEM mentioned will be on each physical hosts.
