Performance of Enterprise Java Applications on VMware vSphere 4.1 and SpringSource tc Server

VMware recently released a whitepaper presenting the results of a performance investigation using a representative enterprise-level Java application on VMware vSphere 4.1. The results of the tests discussed in that paper show that enterprise-level Java applications can provide excellent performance when deployed on VMware vSphere 4.1.  The main topics covered by the paper are a comparison of virtualized and native performance, and an examination of scale-up versus scale-out tradeoffs.

The paper first covers a set of tests that were performed to determine whether an enterprise-level Java application virtualized on VMware vSphere 4.1 can provide equivalent performance to a native deployment configured with the same memory and compute resources.  The tests used response-time as the primary metric for comparing the performance of native and virtualized deployments. The results show that at CPU utilization levels commonly found in real deployments, the native and virtual response-times are close enough to provide an essentially identical user-experience.  Even at peak load, with CPU utilization near the saturation point, the peak throughput of the virtualized application was within 90% of the native deployment.

The paper then discusses the results of an investigation of the performance impact of scaling-up the configuration of a single VM (adding more vCPUs) versus scaling-out to deploy the application on multiple smaller VMs. At loads below 80% CPU utilization, the response-times of scale-up and scale-out configurations using the same number of total vCPUs were effectively equivalent.  At higher loads, the peak-throughput results for the different configurations were also similar, with a slight advantage to scale-out configurations. 

The application used in these tests was Olio, a multi-tier enterprise application which implements a complete social-networking website.  Olio was deployed on SpringSource tc Server, running both natively and virtualized on vSphere 4.1.  

For more information, please read the full paper at http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/10158.  In addition, the author will be publishing additional results on his blog at http://communities.vmware.com/blogs/haroldr.

Double Your Services Business with VMware Shared Services IP and Sales Tools

By Doug Smith

You may have heard some rumblings at VMworld last month, but today VMware has officially announced the availability of Solution Enablement Toolkits (SETs) to help our solution provider partners accelerate sales and increase their virtualization expertise. SETs are a group of critical tools, templates, rich services IP and assets that you can use to create your own unique productized and branded solution around VMware technologies. We’ve made a significant investment in the services IP in each toolkit, which along with the other tools and assets will enable you to virtualize more of your customers’ tier-1 apps and guide them through their journey to cloud computing.

The initial group of partners who were involved in the development and deployment of SETs experienced an average of 2X sales growth vs. similar partners who did not implement SETs. Here are some details:

  • SETs are purpose-built solution kits that will enhance a solution provider’s ability to sell and deliver services for VMware products and solutions. SETs have been created for Infrastructure Virtualization, Desktop Virtualization and Business Continuity.
  • SETs enable partners to create their own packaged solutions for repeatable and scalable value selling and professional services delivery.
  • SETs are the result of collaboration between leading solution providers in the VMware Partner Network (who provided guidance, recommendations and insights to selling and implementing VMware solutions successfully) and VMware key stakeholders: Professional Services, Sales Engineers, Solutions teams, and Product Marketing
  • SETs are available to solution providers that have completed the corresponding VMware Solution Competencies. For a limited time, SETs are at no charge to solution providers that have achieved their Solution Competencies.  

Three new desktop assessment services from the VMware Professional Services Organization are also available on the newly launched SET site.  The DIVA (Desktop Infrastructure Virtualization Assessment), DAVA (Desktop Application Virtualization Assessment) and DVSA (Desktop Virtualization Strategy Assessment) are targeted at enterprise customers who are interested in desktop and application virtualization and who plan a significant adoption of the technology across their organizations. These services will help customers prepare for the successful adoption of desktop virtualization initiatives and provide a comprehensive understanding of the scope of the changes to their organizations. For more information on the services, see: http://www.vmware.com/services/by-product/desktop.html.

As the industry continues to shift toward an IT-as-a-service model, the mutual growth of VMware and our partners is imperative to guiding our customers on their virtualization journey to the cloud. SETs were created to help our partners accelerate the ROI for their competency training, take their solutions to market faster and increase their strategic value with customers. Take advantage of them today!
