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.

Database server consolidation with an Intel Xeon processor E5-2690-based server We tested to see how many dual-socket quad-core legacy servers this new server could consolidate using virtualization.

Server consolidation and TCO: Dell PowerEdge M620 vs. HP ProLiant BL490 We examine the number of virtual machines each server could support and the total cost of ownership for each server over 3 years.

    Are they kidding comparing old BL490 vs new generation M620?

    Yeah, I’ve gotta come out and say that the study seems a bit flawed… Comparing a BL490 with 6 core, 12 DIMM, PCI-2.0 architecture with an 8 core, 18 DIMM slot, PCI-3.0 architecture really isn’t a fair comparison.. Although that isn’t shocking as most vendor funded “independent 3rd party” studies are fairly useless… regardless of which vendor commissioned the study

    Hi Yes I agree with Adam Wolfson, you cant rely on vendor funded studies, Have the Guys seen the Blade servers produced by Hitachi (HDS) ? They claim it come with 10 core and 1TB of memorry

    It is a nice set for performance resource, but I like the way you  covered in the Intel Blade Server. It make sense when seeing the white papers of Blade servers virtual performance.
