Performance Comparison Vmware Workstation vs Windows 8

I currently have en cluster invironment running on Workstation 10 on my Windows 8.1 Machine and i have serious lack of performance on the virtual machines.

My laptop has in all 16ghz of CPU power, 32 gb of memory and 2 SSD drives in raid 0.

But.. I AM running a hyper-v cluster inside the VMware Workstation 10 and the disk is diffenencing. But still i expected more.

So reading on the internet i found an blog where a user have compared disk and CPU performance with VMware Workstation 9 and Windows 8 (yes both version have gotten a number more on its back, but still)

He has discovered that Hyper-v in Windows 8 are 4 times farster!. Which could discribe my issue at hand.

I know, test are what tests are, but this just fits in my situation.

Try reading his comparison, it makes sence.


I will return with my findings after returning to Windows 8.1 hyper-v – where i will install my hyper-v cluster inside hyper-v.

Oooh no whait.. that was why i shifted in the first place.. ohh well dual boot os must be optained to have an Windows 8.1 hyper-v to rock the soks, and a Windows 8.1 with VMware Workstation 10 to test hyper-v clustering.

/I’ll be back
