If you haven’t subscribed to this RSS Feed, you should do so now… it includes Performance Tips for ESX and vSphere. Here is the link and read the insert below.
“We made a huge number of performance improvements in vSphere 4.0. The ESX storage stack was no exception. We ran a wide variety of micro and real world benchmarks to thoroughly evaluate and optimize vSphere’s storage subsystem. It is now even more efficient for the enterprise and ready to support the cloud.
A wide variety of I/O intensive applications will run efficiently on vSphere with all the improvements. You can find details on the architectural changes and storage performance improvements made in this white paper.”
