IBM Power VM Virtualization Technology on IBM Power7 Systems

This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products. The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere1 on an x86-based platform.

How to Benchmark your service desk

All service desks want to know how good they are. But to find out they compare their performance measures to those of the industry. They simply put too much stock in industry-wide benchmarks without an appreciation of all the variables used to construct them.
Instead of misleading measures that compare apples to oranges, the true value of benchmarking comes from within - from tracking internal metrics overtime. Read this white paper by the Service Desk Institute to learn the best ways to benchmark your performance and identify areas of improvement.

- The problems with industry benchmarking
- Why true value comes from internal benchmarking
- What performance measures to focus on
- Why all routes should lead to service improvement
