Dell PowerEdge M820 Virtualization Consolidation Study

Dell's Solutions Performance Analysis (SPA) team conducted a study to measure the virtualized environment to compare the legacy Dell™ PowerEdge™ 2950 III and R710 servers to the new Dell PowerEdge M820 blade server. The configurations chosen were aimed at maximizing the performance of each system by equipping them with the top-speed processors available, a 10Gb network connection to a backend iSCSI SAN, and sufficient memory to run the workload at 100% processor utilization for all processor architectures tested.
