The host with 1TB RAM or 64GB?

There is no meaningful average for two reasons :
- Host specs (example above) - some believe in scale up (fewer but stronger
hosts), some believe in scale out (more hosts, not as high end).
- Workload specs -  Virtual desktop VMs with 2-8GB of RAM,  or large
in-memory 512GB 'monster VMs'?

We see both. So it can range from very few to hundreds.
