Results: 4600 SD Users and 25150 SAPS* in a 2tier setup with 24 vCPU's

 

 

This is the largest 2 tier virtualized benchmark in history, and an excellent proof-point for:

 

  • VMware vSphere  scalability

  • Large  virtualized databases

  • Supportability  of large SAP systems

  • Extremely low overhead of just 6% compared to the same native System

We have created two Benchmarks on the exact same Hardware.

Virtualized: 1 VM with 24 vCPU's on 24 threads and 25120 SAPS*

Native: 1 Server with 24 threads and 26630 SAPS*

 

This  is the "worst case scenario" since the VM takes all the native  resources without additional resources for the Hypervisor and enables a one to one comparison, resulting in an overhead of only 6%.

With vSphere 5 even the most demanding SAP workloads are ready for virtualization.

 

 

We worked with Fujitsu to create a Benchmark report:
