Metro Availability - Maximums Files 3600?


We are about to deploy Metro Availability with ESXi and we have been checking the maximums on the documentation https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v510:sto-metro-availability-c.html

Maximum number of files for all the entities in a protected container = 3600
Maximum number of files for all the entities in a consistency group = 1200
Maximum number of files for all the entities on a remote container = 50000 (because of snapshots)

Does anyone know what 'Maximum number of files for all the entities' means in this context? Each VM on ESXi will have 17+ files associated with it on the Datastore so is our actual max VMs per storage container more like 180?
