Microsoft’s Enterprise Virtualization Solution, Hyper-V, Slower than VMware’s Desktop Version (Workstation)


The folks at "The Hypervisor" just released some pretty interesting Microsoft Hyper-V vs. VMware Workstation benchmark tests showing Hyper-V to be much slower than VMware Workstation in numerous categories.    This is really amazing as Hyper-V is Microsoft’s "enterprise" virtualization solution and VMware Workstation is just a "lowly" desktop virtualization that is not suppose to be faster than a "bare metal hypervisor".   Go Figure…

"In head to head benchmark tests of Microsoft Hyper-V compared to VMware Workstation, The Hypervisor test results indicate virtual machine (VM) performance using Hyper-V is below that of VMware Workstation.

We tested Hyper-V running on a desktop PC fitted with an Intel Core Quad Q6600 CPU running at 2.4GHz. We compared the results with the same PC running Microsoft Vista SP1 x86 and VMware Workstation 6. Our results show VMware Workstation 6 is a faster platform for both Windows and Linux applications, although Hyper-V is almost as fast as VMware Workstation for running Windows Vista."
