Whitepaper: VMware DRS Performance and Best Practices

VMware just published a new, very interesting 19-pages paper about its Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) technology.

To demonstrate the value of this VirtualCenter feature, VMware measured the performance of a couple of virtualization hosts while their virtual machines (with different workloads) are redistributed through DRS algorithm.


The paper also contains a long list of valuable tips to improve the DRS efficiency.

Highly recommended.
