I read this blog posting, the author switched from VMWare to BSD Jails
and saw drastic performance increment. We known for long that Solaris
zones which are similar to Jails have very little overhead to other
solutions, but the trend seems to be towards VMWare as a magic fits-
all solution for all X86 virtualization. Has anyone similar
experiences to share with zones?
I've always advocated zones if the workloads fits the separation it
provides, and pointed out that VMWare are probably not the best
solution for I/O intensive loads. But I have myself not used any
hypervisor based solution for systems with heavy workloads.
