  • Web Server performance : when virtualizing web servers in a 4P solution, the AMD Opteron “Shanghai” processor can deliver performance within 20% from a comparable unvirtualized server in a “raw performance score” comparison. The scores achieved by these two servers represent extremes when compared to most web serving environment. The real story of web server virtualization is the gains due to web farm consolidation and improved flexibility. Infrastructure serving as the web front end today is designed around hundreds or even thousands of often underutilized two and four core servers.  Consolidation of these servers onto modern systems with multi-core CPUs reduces costs, simplifies management and eases power and cooling demands. This SPECweb2005 result from VMware has shown that the AMD Opteron processor running ESX Server can handle loads much more extreme than anticipated in a consolidated web serving environment. SBC performance: this chart proves that the 2000 series AMD Opteron “Istanbul” processor has lower virtualization overhead when used in a general purpose (e.g. file/print) environment than a server using the Intel Xeon 5500 “Gainestown” processor. On the left side of the chart, the Xeon processor supports 402 users vs. Opteron’s 360 users. However, when a virtualiztion layer is added, the Opteron still supports 360 users (zero virtualization overhead degradation) while the “Gainestown” server drops to 340 users (15.42% virtualization degradation).

    • 5. Understanding VMmark Benchmark http://www.vmware.com/products/vmmark/overview.html VMmark Benchmark Real World IT Environment Number of Tiles represents number of VMs - a tile is a collection of 6 VMs, and VMs are increased by adding more tiles Number of VMs per server depends on the characteristics of the workload with new VMs added individually as needed Benchmark Score is an aggregate of normalized individual VM scores Individual VM performance is important to achieving a desired user service level Top VMmark Score is achieved by running a large number of tiles (VMs) per server <ul><li>Responses to SearchDataCenter.com’s 2008 Purchasing Intentions Survey: </li></ul><ul><li>61% run less than 10 VMs per server </li></ul><ul><li>33% run 10 to 25 VMs per server </li></ul><ul><li>5% run more than 25 VMs on a server </li></ul><ul><li>http://searchdatacenter.techtarget.com/generic/0,295582,sid80_gci1329227,00.html </li></ul>VMs are running throttled workloads VM workloads fluctuate based on demand One client is used to drive a tile (6 VMs) Multiple clients drive one VM VMs are running “sub-tests” derived from commonly used load-generation tools VM are running real applications Mocks a consolidation use case comprised of multiple, moderately used VMs Consolidation is just one of several use cases for virtualization
