Overview:

When deciding how to implement a virtualized environment with industry-standard components such as Dell PowerEdge servers and VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 software, two key factors are how many virtual machines (VMs) a single server can run and what level of performance these VMs can provide. Although the answer depends on many different factors, testing with common applications and workloads can provide a starting point for enterprises planning such an environment.


 


This paper displays the results of tests on virtualized environments based on VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 on two differently configured PowerEdge 2950 servers and one previous-generation PowerEdge 2850 server. Using three different workloads, the test team assessed the number of VMs that each server could host and the overall system performance.
