Additional capabilities to manage Transparent Page Sharing

This allows hosts to most efficiently use memory, particularly when those hosts have many almost identical virtual machines running on them. The net benefit is better memory usage, potentially leading to greater consolidation ratios. TPS is one of the memory management techniques which has given VMware an advantage over the competition for years. Today VMware introduced additional capabilities to manage Transparent Page Sharing (TPS). This addition was prompted by recent academic research that leveraged TPS to gain unauthorized access to data under certain highly [ … ]
