Ubuntu 12.04 KVM/Xen Virtualization: Intel vs. AMD
Phoronix: Ubuntu 12.04 KVM/Xen Virtualization: Intel vs. AMD
With the upcoming availability of Ubuntu 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" being a Long-Term Support (LTS) release that will be quickly making its way into many enterprise environments, here's a look at the virtualization performance of this popular Linux distribution. In particular, being looked at is the Linux virtualization performance of KVM, Xen, and Oracle VirtualBox compared to bare metal when using Intel Sandy Bridge Extreme and AMD Bulldozer hardware.
How were the virtual machine disks configured?
Thanks for very informative article.
In my experience with KVM, there is a difference between running a guest VM from an image file on host OS file system and running it from a partition on a separate disk. Using a virtio drivers should further improve the performance as well.
So I'd like to ask how were the disks configured for the virtual machines in the tests?

I would like to read some opengl games tests
at MS WOS with XEN VGA passthrought
I think some day, and perhaps today it will be safer and faster to run MS WOS with Xen VGA passthrought at MS WOS desktops.
Even you can play directx or opengl games without antivirus and better 3dmarks at a SOHO computer.
But I never can read some tests for this tech - that allows to use native proprietary drivers for the GPU card. -.
