By | February 2, 2007

To assess virtualization scalability and performance, Dell engineers tested two Dell™ PowerEdge™ 2950 servers with dual-core Intel® Xeon® 5160 and quad-core Intel Xeon X5355 processors alongside a previous-generation PowerEdge 2850 server with dualcore Intel Xeon processors in a virtualized environment based on VMware® Virtual Infrastructure 3. The results show that the PowerEdge 2950 servers can provide enhanced performance and host more virtual machines than the PowerEdge 2850.
