CompTIA A+ Question G-8

Which of the following would be the MOST important factor to consider when building a virtualization workstation?

A. High-end graphics card with onboard memory
B. A compact form factor
C. Dual monitor support

Correct Answer: D

Explanation:

Therefore, you need maximum RAM and CPU cores to make sure you have enough resources for your virtualization platform.
