Host IO Capacity

Where is a host's IO capacity set?  It looks like 1,024,000 KB/sec is considered 100% utilization.  That seems to be an arbitrarily low threshold.  I have one VM running heavy I/O on a host, which in turn is causing the IO utilization on that host to hit 100%, which in turn is causing Turbo to move most of the VMs off that host.  Where can I adjust the IO capacity, either for the host, or for the storage device, to allow a higher IO rate?
