Edge is tuned for production workloads and has support.  The vsim is optimized for test & dev.

Some of that tuning includes:

Fixed sizing requirements (ram, vcpu count, etc)

Virtual SAS disk subsystem

RAID0 - leveraging physical raid controller for redundancy

VNVRAM - leveraging physical raid controller BBWC

no CPU halt on idle

ESX is a requirement, desktop hypervisors will not work.

and features that don't work in a VM are disabled (fc commands, etc)
