When you deploy a virtual machine, you select the host, cluster, vApp, or resource pool for the virtual machine to run in. The virtual machine will have access to the resources of the selected object.

For example, a virtual machine has access to the memory and CPU resources of the host on which it resides. If you select a cluster for the virtual machine, and the administrator has configured the cluster to take advantage of HA and DRS, the virtual machine will have a greater level of availability.

If deploying the virtual machine to the selected location might cause compatibility problems, the problems appear at the bottom of the window.
