Virtualization Performance on Blade Servers

One of the industry-leading independent technology assessment service firms, Principled Technologies, just updated their site with a ton of white papers covering performance on just about any product or technology.  You can check out their website at http://www.principledtechnologies.com/default.htm for the complete list, but I wanted to give you the links to their papers that cover virtualization performance on blade servers.

These are the newest white papers, and yes they are mostly Dell.  However, keep an eye on

http://www.principledtechnologies.com/Topics/servers.htm as I’m sure they’ll have HP, IBM and Cisco papers up soon.
