Noticed this on the Citrix blog today. A nice little performance comparison between ESXi 5.5 and XenServer 6.5. Citrix claims to show a 11-16% performance advantage over VMware. I’m holding off on upgrading to 6.5 till summer, but can’t wait to run some of my own benchmarks against XenServer 6.2.
Xenserver 6.5 promises to provide more performance, more GPU access, and bring back Workload Balancing (WLB). I won’t be applying 6.5 for a few months, so please let me know of any experiences you have in the comments.
Juicy details here!
