vSphere DRS

The SovLabs vSphere Dynamic Resource Scheduler (DRS) Module for vRealize Automation allows organizations to take advantage of VMware’s DRS technology to sub-divide vSphere Clusters for consumption by vRealize Automation. Utilizing the vSphere DRS host group feature, separate workloads onto specific host group(s) of ESXi hosts within a vSphere cluster based on criteria (such as OS type, application, or licensing restrictions) without the need to create individual isolated vSphere clusters.
