Once again, HP ProLiant servers rule the virtualization world with another #1 performance benchmark using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0. This is the first result to use Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. In addition to its #1 holdings for 4 processors and 8 processors, HP now adds the ProLiant DL380p Gen8 to the list for highest 2-processor performance – a clean sweep.
This is an exciting result and highlights the success both HP and Red Hat are achieving on HP’s Gen8 ProLiant servers. HP offers Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization subscriptions and support. For more information on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and ProLiant servers, visit our web site.
About HP ProLiant Gen8 servers
HP ProLiant Gen8 servers feature embedded automation and intelligence that cut lifecycle operations tasks, facilities overhead, and downtime costs. With HP ProActive Insight architecture, HP ProLiant Gen8 servers continuously monitor more than a thousand system parameters to optimize application performance and proactively decrease downtime, while providing organizations insight into every aspect of their IT infrastructure.
About Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is an end-to-end virtualization solution. It combines the power of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) kernel with Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) —the leading open source virtualization technology and enterprise-grade centralized management features. RHEV 3.0 is the next-generation of the solution, providing new levels of scalability and performance.
About the SPECvirt_sc2010 benchmark
SPECvirt_sc2010 is SPEC's first benchmark addressing performance evaluation of datacenter servers used in virtualized server consolidation. SPECvirt_sc2010 measures the end-to-end performance of all system components including the hardware, virtualization platform, the virtualized guest operating system, and application software. The benchmark supports hardware virtualization, operating system virtualization, and hardware partitioning schemes.
Being a Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) benchmark, SPECvirt_sc2010 is a peer-reviewed benchmark that provides a way for server vendors to compare benchmark results in a fair manner.
