      I'm pleased to announce that VMmark 3.0, VMware’s multi-host virtualization benchmark is generally available here.  VMmark3 is a free cluster-level benchmark that measures the performance, scalability, and power of virtualization platforms.


      VMmark3 leverages much of previous VMmark generations’ technologies and design.  It continues to utilize a unique tile-based heterogeneous workload application design. It also deploys the platform-level workloads found in VMmark2 such as vMotion, Storage vMotion, and Clone & Deploy.  In addition to incorporating new and updated application workloads and infrastructure operations, VMmark3 also introduces a new fully automated provisioning service that greatly reduces deployment complexity and time.
