VMware DRS quiz: Rules, settings, requirements and best practices

Knowing how to use VMware DRS is key to getting the most out of vSphere, so quiz yourself on its features. A high score could mean high utilization.

The better you know VMware DRS, the more you'll benefit from vSphere virtualization.

VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) calculates vSphere virtual machines' resource requirements and the available hardware resources, distributing VMs in the most efficient manner across physical hosts. Administrators control VMware DRS rules and settings depending on the level of manual control they need.

Take the quiz to see how well you know VMware DRS, Storage DRS and DPM, and if your DRS setup is optimal.
