IBM PowerVM Virtualization Technology on IBM POWER7 Systems: A Comparison of PowerVM and VMware vSphere 4.1 update 1 Virtualization Performance

IBM PowerVM Virtualization Technology on IBM POWER7 Systems: A Comparison of PowerVM and VMware vSphere 4.1 update 1 Virtualization Performance

Cover

This technical white paper examines IBM's new server array presenting benchmark results showing greater virtual machine (VM) consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products.

The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere 4.1 update 1 on an x86-based platform.
