With the release of vSphere update 1, there is major shift in the supported compute maximums as summarised in table below.
|vSphere 7||vSphere 7 Update 1|
|Virtual CPUs per VM||256||768|
|Memory per VM||6 TB||24 TB|
|CPUs per host||768||768|
|Memory per host||16 TB||24 TB|
|Hosts per cluster||64||96|
With vCenter Server 7.0 Update 1, scalability for vSphere Lifecycle Manager operations with ESXi hosts and clusters is increased as follows:
- 64 supported clusters from 15 clusters.
- 96 supported ESXi hosts within a cluster from 64. For vSAN environments, the limit is still same i.e. max 64 hosts
- 280 supported ESXi hosts managed by a vSphere Lifecycle Manager Image from 150
- 64 clusters on which you can run remediation in parallel, if you initiate remediation at a data center level from 15 clusters.
