    VMWare call the concept "Traffic Shaping", and if I recall correctly it is only available in ESX Server.

    Seeing as you are looking to place bandwidth limits I'm guessing you are looking to sell VMs on to people, which, unfortunately is against VMwares licence agreement, you might want to look at other options.

    Toby is correct, you need to be a VMware Service Provider Partner to sell o VM's. It's very expensive and you need at least 2 technicians qualified with VMware as employees.

    Try Citrix XenServer if you want a hypervisor you can use for free.
