I often get asked questions about configuration maximums in regards to VMware products. Often this results in me doing a quick Google Search to find the answer. The other day I was on another Google exploration and ran into the VMware Configurations Maximums website.

I think this a very handy site to get this info so that is why I decided to write a small blog post about the VMware Configuration Maximums.

On the website you can find the most common used VMware products and their configurations limits. I can imagine that new or different products will be added overtime.

Products available on the maximums website at the time of writing this blog post

But that is not all, you can also compare different versions of VMware products. This can be handy if you for instance want to find out how many IDE CDROM devices you can add to a VM as show below.

Note, I choose vSphere 6.0 just as an example but I would not recommend using vSphere 6.0 anymore as it will go EOL March 12th 2020

Another cool feature I found on the website is that I can also export the results into a PDF.
This can be a nice thing if a customer asks for an overview of limits he or she can configure. This report looks something like this:

So if you ever wondered where you can quickly find all configurations limits in one place I would suggest you check out the Maximums website.
