    This IBM® Redpapers™ publication presents the results of I/O performance tests conducted using VMware ESX running on IBM System x® servers attached to the IBM System Storage™ SAN Volume Controller (SVC). We show the results of tests involving different work loads and I/O patterns and offer guidance about how best to use the SVC with VMware. We reference the SVC performance best practices that are detailed in various IBM Redbooks® publications, as well as VMware documents.
