Default Common Virtualization myths spread by the gullible press

The people at VMWare have the right to claim that I/O intensive applications can be virtualized at a relatively low performance cost (it is possible), but the task of analysts and press to find the snakes under the grass, and to talk about the "if"s and "but's". In my next post tomorrow I will show how some of the "near native performance" claims are simply very clever but completely useless and wrong in the real world.

We love virtualization as it is lowering the cost of IT. But despite the fact that we are "not opposed to it", we'll do some independent testing before we believe VMWare, Xen and Microsoft.
