Workload Balance is a feature that provides for moving virtual compute resources and their associated file systems dynamically across datastore clusters within a data center or custom data center.

Using Workload Balance, you can rebalance virtual machines and storage across clusters, relieving demand on an overloaded individual cluster and maintaining and/or improving cluster and datacenter performance.

Workload Balance further enables you to potentially automate a significant portion of your datacenter compute and storage balancing efforts. With properly defined policies determining the threshold at which resource contention triggers an alert and automatically executes a recommended action, a datacenter can perform at optimum.
