VMware developing a cluster-aware benchmark

While VMware is about to release the first update of its current benchmark framework, VMmark, it’s already working on something beyond that.

VMmark 1.0 and 1.1 are blueprints designed to measure the performance of a single virtualization host, but what happens when a customer wants to measure the degradation of the infrastructure during a VMotion?

VMware publishes a series of preliminary tests to introduce an upcoming, cluster-aware version of VMmark.
