Magazine compares ESX vs Virtual Server vs Virtuozzo

Wow. Both get a 8.2 score. Also I seriously doubt if he really did this, meaning really tested it. If yes, then I want some screenshots and a video on it!

Getting back to Virtual Server 2005, one of the biggest changes to R2 is x64 host support. This lets it run a crazy amount of virtual machines. With a four-way, dual-core x64 box holding an incredible 128GB of memory, I was able to easily run a dozen virtual machines with almost no disk activity.

and please also tell what you did on it. run a "notepad cluster"? Pretty shady this verdict.

Ah wait, I get it. "Its the Redmondmag, stupid"

And in another news Zonk (Is he the same Zonk from Slashdot?) writes up something at NewsForge for VMware server. Besides a couple of typos (VMWware et al), I am impressed that he did do some stress test. Read more here.
