VCP – Data Center Virtualization – Question 72

Exam 2V0-622 : VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization

Which two statements are true for Predictive DRS? (Choose two.)

A. It balances resource utilization for virtual machines with unpredictable utilization patterns.
B. It integrates DRS with vRealize Operations Manager to balance workloads for virtual machines before resource utilization spikes occur.
C. It balances resource utilization based on a threshold’s algorithm that runs each night.
D. It determines the best placement and balance of virtual machines based on a threshold’s algorithm that runs each night in vCenter Server 6.5 Database.

Correct Answer: BC
Explanation:
Predictive DRS using a combination of DRS and vRealize Operations Manager to predict future demand and determine when and where hot spots will occur. When future hot spots are found, Predictive DRS moves the workloads long before any contention can occur.
Each night it runs its Dynamic Threshold calculations which uses sophisticated analytics to create a band of what is “normal” for each metric/object combination
