  1. You said it took 10 minutes to deploy an instance ? My guess would be a large part of the problem might have been HDD-performance ? Have you considered enabling the write-cache/cache-writeback for the VM ? Which on a lot of hypervisors is an option.

    Your data might be less safe, but who cares about that for a test setup if it saves you time. You can even make snapshots after you’ve done certain tasks.

    1. I think it’s a combination of the fact that I limited the vCenter to only 3GB of RAM and the vCenter API’s for orchestration haven’t always been the most robust. I’m going to try it on my Workstation which has 32GB of RAM and 4 cores + Hyper threading. It should be a big difference.
