Virtual Iron: supports new intel quad-core; does excellent at Intel vConsolidate!

Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 7300 series bring the energy-efficient virtualization performance of Intel® Core Architecture to MP server platforms. This platform delivered up to 167% virtualization performance improvement on Virtual Iron Version 4.0 software based on the vConsolidate performance benchmark, a methodology to accurately and consistently measure performance in a virtualized environment. The results were remarkable. The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 7300 series-based server utilizing Virtual Iron 4.0 was able to run twice as many Consolidated Stack Units (CSUs) relative to Intel’s previous dual core MP platforms. This unprecedented scalability translates into increased virtualization performance, more VM capacity and higher consolidation ratios improving even further the benefits of virtualization for enterprise data centers.

Virtualization performance of this platform is further enhanced with new Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel-VT) extensions. Virtual Iron is among the first to provide a server virtualization solution supporting these new capabilities, greatly improving the performance of SMP 32-bit guests running the most common and demanding workloads.

“Virtual Iron’s version 4 takes full advantage of Intel’s latest performance advancements in our Quad-Core processors and will deliver end-users the benefits from continuous innovations present on Intel platforms including the new extensions of Intel® Virtualization Technology” said Diane Bryant, Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Server Platforms Group. “Intel is committed to working with Virtual Iron to deliver solutions that address the requirements that our combined customers have come to expect.”
