VMware has achieved high performance levels according to data which has validated the value of virtualizing business critical applications. The company has announced the levels of performance for SAP, Sybase, Adaptive Server, Enterprise, running on VMware vSphere.

The successful testing means VMware will continue to work with SAP to fully support the SAP database portfolio. The tests were conducted across configurations to compare the performance of SAP Sybase ASE running on a virtual machine versus directly.

The outcome released by the cloud infrastructure and virtualization company, showed throughput on a high-transaction OLTP database to be identical to that of a matching physical system.

These tests have been implemented for customers to realize the cost effectiveness of virtualization, with the test results demonstrating the commitment VMware has made to validating and optimizing these solutions to simultaneously work together.

Vice President, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware Parag Patel emphasized the important of Virtualizing databases.

“Virtualizing databases is a vital part of an organization’s journey to the cloud as they shift from running business-critical applications on physical infrastructure to full virtualization.

“We are pleased to continue to work with SAP to help ensure our customers have the confidence to successfully virtualize SAP’s portfolio of Sybase solutions to transform their businesses with high-performing, agile and cost-effective IT infrastructure,” the VMware VP said.
