Follow up question:

Assume I have a hardware pool with 40 cpus, 40 Gigs RAM, and 400 Gigs 
Storage. If I wanted to dole it out to several development teams, would 
the assumption be that I create a hardware pool with default quotas of 
(4, 4, 10) and then create 10 team Virtual Machine pools? If I assume 
that each team will use 1/2 of the capacity I give them, I could assume 
creating 15 to 20 Virtual Machine pools. Is there an expected best 
practice for this?
