Minimum Hardware Requirements
|CPU||At least 1 64-bit dual-core processor.|
|Memory||Min of 4GB of RAM. Recommended at least 8GB of RAM.|
|Network||1/more Gigabit/faster Ethernet controllers.|
|Storage||Storage adequate to run host and virtual machines.|
Recommendations for Enhanced Performance
|RAM||Requires more RAM than typical server. At least 8GB of RAM to take full advantage of ESXi features. ESXi must have sufficient RAM to run concurrent virtual machines.|
|Disk Location||Place all data your virtual machines use on physical disks allocated to specific machines. Performance is best when virtual machines are not placed on the disk containing ESXi boot image. Use disks large enough to hold images that all virtual machines use.|
|Processors||Faster processors improve ESXi performance. For certain workloads, larger caches improve ESXi performance.|
|Hardware||Use devices supported by ESXi 6.0 drivers.|
