How business-critical database workloads perform when virtualized with Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series-based servers and VMware vSphere™

This white paper documents the performance of mission-critical database workloads running on servers equipped with the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4. Using standard and nonstandard testing tools, these tests replicate real-world scenarios found in production environments. Specifically, these tests show that the combination of the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series and VMware vSphere 4 can allow a company to achieve greater performance while dramatically reducing operating costs by using less energy and space. Servers built using this combination deliver up to 3.5 times better virtualization performance than previous generations, as well as near-native performance on enterprise applications such as database, productivity, and business applications running in a virtual environment. This combination also permits greater VM density, resulting in 3.7 times higher consolidation than servers built on the prior-generation processors. As a result, organizations can realize both capital and operational expense savings due to decreased hardware requirements and improved utilization.
