    Performance in virtual

    Many people ask questions regarding operating system performance in a virtual installation. I run several Linux and Windows systems in virtual under VMware Player and the virtual system all run from an external SSD attached via eSata.

    Out of curiosity I just checked the boot times for a cold boot of Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit in Event 100 of the Event Viewer. I think the 23.5 seconds for a cold boot is rather amazing given that there are two possible components that could degrade the performance - VMware Player and the external disk.

    Conclusion: A virtual OS performs very well.

    We run hundreds of servers virtualized. Performance is not much of an issue these days.
