Benchmark description for legacy server consolidation using Microsoft Hyper-V Server* 2008 R2 hypervisor
The chart illustrates consolidation of one or more legacy database servers on to a single virtualized server platform. The database server used is Microsoft SQL Server* R2 2008 and the virtualization software used was Microsoft Windows Server* R2 2008 with Hyper-V. The legacy server, which was not virtualized, forms the baseline platform. On the consolidation server, virtual machine (VM) partitions of size comparable to the baseline platform were created. The maximum number of such concurrent VMs that can be supported defines the consolidation ratio.
The application used was DVD Store Version 2 (DS2) test tool. DS2 is an open-source simulation of an online e-commerce DVD store, where customers log in, browse, and order products. The main DS2 metric is orders per minute, or OPM.
Legacy server consolidation using Microsoft Hyper-V Server* 2008 R2 hypervisor
Comparison based on published results at http://principledtechnologies.com/clients/reports/intel/X7560VMSQL0310.pdf (PDF 581KB) as of 19 April 2010. Microsoft SQL Server* 2008 R2 was used as the database server in both the native and virtualized environments.
