single slot multiple core vs multiple slot single core

hello expert

as i know if single slot with multiple core better than multiple slot single core

for example A have 1 slot with 4 core B have 4 slot with 1 core

as i know if running multiple slot that running os  per slot also right ?  but i dont know how consume exactly 

anyone can explain it because i want to makesure to customer 

 

  • The experts say always go multiple slot but with logical 2 cores for vCMP/Velos (I think 1 is not an option anyway so 2 cores on blade 1 and 2 on blade 2) as when a blade goes down you do not lose tenant config and you just remove the faulty blade and place the RMA one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also always keep the vcmp quest / velos tenant images on the chassis as to be able to rebuild the tenant/quest after you replaced the blade as to not hit the error below:
