What is DRS (Distributed Resource Scheduler) in vSphere?

Virtualized environments are a great way for businesses to reduce their TCO (total cost of ownership). Typically, computers never utilize all available computational resources they have access to. By using a computer to host multiple virtualized computers, those unused computational resources can be utilized for other tasks. As businesses grow, virtualized environments become more complex and spread across multiple computers and sometimes locations, though. So, the virtual machine hosting and management software need a way to organize and manage computational resources for this larger, multi-computer environment. That is the job of DRS.

DRS is a feature that enables the virtual environment to automatically balance itself and manage resources across all VM hosts and clusters. For instance, when a VM starts, DRS will attempt to place that VM on a host that is best suited for it. Likewise, while VMs are running, DRS will attempt to manage and balance physical resources between VMs to eliminate resource contention.
