Most of the time, while taking a VPS package I have come across vCPU, what is it?
Can you help me with this term?

vCPU is an abbreviation for Virtual Central Processing unit. Each vCPU acts as a single physical CPU core and each one is assigned to Virtual Machines within the cloud environment. Each of these core safely supports 8 vCPUs.

vCPU means the portion of a physical server is assigned to Virtual Machine, hence it is also known as Virtual Processor. System administrators make use of virtualization to make the partition of physical hardware systems to provide more functionalities. In such a case, the individual physical CPUs of the computer are combined together into a system where network engineers can plug virtual resources for a fully assembled network that is more versatile.
Hope you get the concept of vCPU.

A vCPU (virtual CPU) represents the part or share of a physical CPU that is assigned to a virtual machine (VM). Each Physical CPU is divided into physical CPU cores. One physical CPU core is divided or supports 8 virtual processors (vCPUs). Each vCPU is acting as a single physical CPU core of the VMs operating system.

vCPU stands for virtual central processing unit. When one or more vCPUs are allocated to every Virtual Machine (VM) within a cloud environment it is called as a vCPU. Each vCPU represents a single physical CPU core by the VMs operating system. If there are multiple CPU cores in the host machine at its disposal, then the vCPU is a combination of a number of time slots across all of the available cores. This allows multiple VMs to be hosted on a smaller number of physical cores.
