Unformatted text preview: ers are better. Figure 2 illustrates the performance/watt for each of the two solutions. In this chart, we normalized the results for each workload to those of the solution with lower performance/watt. We compute performance/watt by dividing the benchmark’s score by the average power consumption, in watts, of the solution during the period the benchmark was delivering peak performance. As Figure 2 shows, the Dell R710 solution delivered 29.9 percent more performance/ watt than did the HP DL385 G5 solution. We normalized the results for each workload to those of the server with lower performance/watt. We installed and ran the LoadGen client from VMs on a separate ESX 3.5 host with four Intel X7460 2.66Ghz processors and 64 GB of RAM. We ran a single instance of the client per VM, and each client VM targeted only one server VM. Workload Our goal was to see how many virtual machines running this workload on Microsoft Server 2008 with Exchange 2007 the server could handle with acceptable performance.1 To reach t...
