Executive Summary

Consolidation of computing hardware has historically been the first step in resource optimization projects. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers takes this a step further by consolidating OSs through a proven technology and management interface that reduces costs and complexity while enabling performance sensitive/resource intensive workloads to be addressed. Parallels Virtuozzo offers high server density and scalability through its near-native performance architecture, making it optimal for applications like Online Transaction Processing (OLTP). This paper provides an overview of the OLTP performance benchmarks conducted by HP BCS Windows Integrity Engineering and Parallels Engineering on HP Integrity servers using OS virtualization technology - Parallels Virtuozzo Containers - to provide a proof point to validate the low overhead this virtualization approach yields.
