Networked storage is being deployed in conjunction with server virtualization by a growing number of organizations interested in consolidation, reduced costs, and improved flexibility and availability of mission-critical applications including databases and e-mail. ESG research indicates that IT managers looking to reap the benefits of server and storage consolidation are concerned about performance. This ESG Lab report presents the results of a new performance benchmark methodology designed to assess the real-world performance capabilities of a SAN-attached IBM System Storage DS5020 Express/DS3950 Express storage system and IBM System x3950 M2 servers deployed in a highly virtualized Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2 enabled data center.
