Hi, my name is Chris. I’m one of the system engineers here at Hyve Managed Hosting and today, we’re going to be talking about vCPUs. So what is a vCPU? This is a virtual central processing unit which runs on virtualisation software. One or more vCPUs are assigned to every virtual machine within a cloud environment. The VM’s operating system will see each vCPU as a single physical core. Now the way this works is by using the physical CPU in a host server as its own virtual processor. This allows multiple VMs to be hosted on a single CPU. The number of vCPUs that can be assigned to a virtual machine is dependent on a few factors: the number of physical CPUs in the host, the number of cores per CPU, and if the CPUs are hyperthreaded. For more information on vCPUs, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below or get in contact with us directly. Thank you for watching the video and we look forward to seeing you in the next one.
