Virtualization Clinic: Benchmarks

Alex Vasilevsky, Vice President, CTO and Founder of Virtual Iron, writes on his Blog site about the recent events around virtualization benchmark standards in the industry.  Alex was recently questioned about this very subject during a Webcast with IDC... read what his thoughts are on the subject. 

One thing that Alex says is something I firmly believe in as well.  With different organizations creating "standards" for benchmarking tests, in the virtual world, just like the physical world, it is important to determine exactly what it is you are trying to benchmark or clearly define what it is you are running performance tests against.  His "bottom line" is spot on.  He says "everyone should evaluate the types of workloads that they plan to virtualize and run your own benchmarks, as your environment (network configuration, hardware, operating systems, etc.) will influence the results greatly."
