Virtual machine projects help you assess the consequences of changing resources on virtual machines without applying the changes to your virtual environment. Before you apply changes to your virtual environment, you can create sample virtual machine projects to model adding or removing virtual machines to a host or a cluster.

You can create a project scenario that uses an existing virtual machine profile as a model. The project scenario simulates the resource requirements when you add one or more virtual machines to a host or cluster.

Virtual machine projects assess the consequences of adding a new virtual machine to a cluster or host, without applying the actual changes to your virtual environment.

You can create a project that simulates removing one or more virtual machines from a host or a cluster. You might remove virtual machines when you no longer need them, or when you must move them.
