World-Record Power-Performance Results for Virtualization Workloads

It’s no exaggeration to say that virtualized infrastructure is ubiquitous. According to one study, more than 92 percent of businesses in North America and Europe rely on server-virtualization technology.¹ However, the workloads that are run in those virtualized environments, and the types of businesses that run those workloads, can vary dramatically. Small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) often host a wide mix of server workloads on a single, reliable server. Businesses of all sizes host database workloads on virtual machines (VMs). And some businesses, such as healthcare organizations, might serve virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to users from a single, efficient physical server.
