Written by Project VRC on .

Project VRC released their Phase II whitepaper in February 2010. Project VRC Phase II focuses completely on virtualizing terminal server workloads on the latest generation hardware and hypervisors.

Out now: Project VRC Phase 2

Written by Project VRC on .

This new Project VRC phase 2 whitepaper focuses completely on analyzing Terminal Services (TS) workloads running on the latest generation hardware and hypervisors. While in phase 1 of project VRC VMware ESX3.5, Citrix XenServer 5.0 and Microsoft Hyper-V 1.0 were tested on a HP DL385G5 with AMD “Barcelona” processors, this whitepaper reviews vSphere 4.0, XenServer 5.5 and Hyper-V 2.0 running on HPDL380G6 with Intel “Nehalem” processor.

New Whitepaper: VRC, VSI and Clocks reviewed

Written by Project VRC on .

This whitepaper is a review and reflection on previous Project VRC publications, the benchmark: “Login Virtual Session Indexer (VSI)” and Windows clock behavior within virtual machines. This discussion is fueled by the fact that results from the individual Project VRC whitepapers are set side-by-side to compare hypervisors. Project VRC has been in discussion with both vendors and community, and performed additional research in this context. Before Project VRC can publish new results, it is important to address any questions, review the impact of this discussion and improve Login VSI where possible.
