How many virtual machines can you run on one host?

As with many server performance questions, the answer to this question is “it depends”. You can run as many VMs on a single host as your hypervisor supports (usually that is a lot) and as you have server resources for (RAM, CPU, Disk, and Network).

Typically, on a desktop PC, you can run 1-3 VMs and on a Server you can run 10-50 VMs – depending on the application demands.
