Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Through 10.10 Virtualization Benchmarks
Phoronix: Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Through 10.10 Virtualization Benchmarks
Earlier this month we delivered Ubuntu 10.10 benchmarks from some different hardware comparing the performance of this "Maverick Meerkat" release to that of Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.1 LTS. The results were interesting, but since then we have had the time to complete additional tests. In this benchmarking roundabout, we decided to see how the performance of every release from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS through the new Ubuntu Linux release performs when tested in a virtualized environment using Linux's KVM virtualization. Here are the virtualized guest results for Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10, 10.04.1 LTS, and 10.10.
comparison back to native would be nice
... as well as VirtualBox OSE. I've never seen any stats, but I'd be surprised if there were more KVM installs than virtualbox on the desktop anyway.
