Lab Test: AppZero Turbo-Charges Server Consolidation
Server consolidation continues to be one of the strongest drivers of virtualization adoption, and one of its most significant pay-offs. However, when it comes to provisioning server-based applications, AppZero's Virtual Application Appliance (VAA) approach offers dramatic benefits in agility, cost, and performance - whether deploying to physical or virtual machines. This paper examines the impact of application virtualization technology on overall system performance. It documents a simple performance evaluation of application virtualization using AppZero Virtual Application Appliance (VAA) compared to a VMware ESX-based system using Virtual Machines (VM).
