Seeing that Sun Microsystems just entered the official VMmark results page, I thought I would share the news here and explain what VMmark is.
VMmark is the first industry-standard virtualization benchmark – a free product from VMware which allows you to test the performance of your virtual environment by running various workload scenarios on your virtual appliances.
Just like in conventional TPC-based testing, there is a server which runs the workload scenario, and there clients which interact with it triggering different developments of such scenarios.
The following workload scenarios are available in VMmark:
- Mail server
- Java server
- Standby server
- Web server
- Database server
- File server
