Hyper-V or vSphere: Who's Fastest?
Virtualization Review's editor, Bruce Hoard, blogs about a performance comparison between vSphere and Hyper-V done by Principled Technologies. The researchers pushed SQL Server data through a bench test of 24 VMs, then 30 VMs on both hypervisors at full resource utilization. Hyper-V got pinned in the arm-wrestling contest by vSphere.
The test does come with some bias, though--Principled Technologies was commissioned by VMware.
