VMmark 1.0 Results Page Debuts

Please take a moment to check out the benchmark disclosures posted on
our newly unveiled VMmark results page at
www.vmware.com/products/vmmark/results.html. At the moment, the page
contains results submitted by both Dell and HP using VMmark 1.0. This
data should help customers effectively evaluate virtualization
platforms in a consolidation scenario. There is a nice range of
results ranging from four-core to sixteen-core systems, including
Intel’s just-launched quad-core, quad-socket systems
(Tigerton/Caneland). We are delighted by the strong initial response
to the benchmark from our partners and expect the list of submitted
results to grow.

  1. It appears that Dell chose to go the externally connected SAS enclosure (DASD) route (MD1000 via PERC 5/E) as opposed to a more traditional SAN setup (EMC Clariion for instance). I would be interested to see their numbers again with SAN attached storage instead.
