Beyond the Test

You may have heard that our recent cover story, in which we tested hypervisor performance for Hyper-V, XenServer and ESX, caused some controversy. Everyone seems to have an opinion -- VMware thinks our testing stinks and our results can't be trusted, Simon Crosby at Citrix defends our testing, and Microsoft kindly applauds our journalistic integrity.

Burton Group Analyst and Virtualization Review columnist Chris Wolf does this debate a service by going beyond the test results and addressing the need for a more formalized set of benchmarks for testing virtualization. Good reading, and I couldn't agree with him more.
