Reservation policy is often unused feature and to some extend not fully understood. Primary reason could be that reservation policy creation process very simple and during policy creation we don’t glue pieces together. That being said there are very valid use cases for using reservation policy and comes very handy in VM Placement. One of the core principles of Software Defined Datacenter (SDDC) suggests we need to have policy based automation and common management platform across the entire infrastructure.
With reservation policy we address this requirement. It is my personal belief that features in any products are aimed to solve some or other business problems. All we should attempt is to find those relevant business case or help someone find them. In this blog I aim for later.
