How to find out if your server is using virtualization in 2018
FourFourtwo, a digital forensics and data analysis company, has analyzed the servers of four of the top 10 cloud providers and discovered some serious performance issues.
The companies were identified by FourFour by a combination of data that had been collected by the company’s network and data that was collected from the hosts of those servers.
In the first round of testing, the hosts were randomly selected and given a few hours to test their hardware to see if they had a performance issue.
FourFour found that of the four hosts, one was running virtualization, another one was using virtual machines, and a third one was not using virtual servers.
FourFive had a CPU with more than 20 cores running at 3.5 GHz.
FourFive, a host with an Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor, has a 10.5-core CPU, but was unable to find any performance issues, FourFour reported.
FourFifteen also had an Intel E5 CPU running at 2.8 GHz, but had problems accessing data that the hosts had collected from that CPU.
FourEight had an AMD Ryzen processor running at 1.6 GHz.
FourSixteen, a CPU running Intel Xeon V3 CPUs running at 4.2 GHz and running on VMware ESXi, had a 5-core Xeon running at 9.7 GHz and an 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 CPU running on ESXi 6.0.
FourSixteen had an Xeon E5 with 2.2 GB of RAM running at 6.4 GHz, which was running on Windows 10.
FourSeven had a Xeon E3 running at 10.3 GHz, with a 10-core Ryzen 7 with an 8 cores at 3 GHz running on a Dell Inspiron 15 7000.
FourTen had an Xeon E4 running at 12.1 GHz, at 3 cores at 1 GHz and with a 3-core Zen CPU running in VMware ESX.
FourTen was able to access the hosts data on a machine running ESXi 7.0 on the same host as a Windows 10 virtual machine running the virtualization feature of VMware ESVM.
FourEight, the last host, had an x86 Xeon running Intel Core i5-7300 at 2GHz, an AMD FX-6300 at 4 GHz, and an AMD X370-series GPU at 6 GHz.
FiveSixteen also used Intel Xeon processors running at 5.5GHz, with 8 cores and 6 threads.
FiveSixteen’s Intel Core M processor was running at 7.4GHz.
FiveSix15 also had a Core i7-6700 running at 8.5Ghz.
FourNine had a Pentium D running at 1350MHz.
FourNine also had 8 cores, 6 threads, and 4GB of RAM.
FiveNine had an A10-7600 at 16-bit at 2,800MHz, and 3 cores, 2 threads, 8GB of VRAM, and 32GB of DDR3L.
FiveTen had a dual-core i7 at 3,700MHz and 8 cores.
FourFourteen had a Haswell-E with 2GB of memory running at 1600MHz.
FiveFourteen also ran Windows 10 Professional.
FourOne was a Hasfield E7 with an i7 CPU running with HyperThreading on VMware vSphere 6.5.
FourTwo was a Xeon with a 2.5 to 4GHz CPU and a 1,600-core memory running on HyperThread.
FourTwo had a 32-core E5 processor running on Intel Xeon running ESX 5.6.
FourThree had an E5 running at 900MHz.
FourTwenty had a 3.7GHz Intel Xeon CPU running ESxmall 5.0 running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and VMware ESVC.
FourThirty had an i5 running with 3.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo at 2200MHz.
FiveThirty had a 1.9GHz Core i3 running on Linux and VMware vSwitch.
SixSeven had an 8 Core Xeon running VMware ESMVM 5.4 running on OpenStack.
SixEight had a 2GHz Intel Pentium running on vSphere 5.3 running ESMV 5.1.
SixNine had Intel Xeon at 1,100MHz running ESvSphere 5 with HyperCPU.
SixTen had the Core i9-7900X at 4GHz running ESVSphere 6 running on OSX and VMware VMSAV 5 with hyper-threading.
SixEleven had an Core i4 at 1GHz running OSX ESXi 5 running on SolarWinds Cloud VMs and VMware VMs ESVVM 6 with Hyper-Threading.
SixFour had an LSI S3500 at 6GHz running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 running on CentOS 6.8 running ES vSphere.
SixFive had an F6C6E Intel Xeon processor running in Hyper-V running on Debian 8.8. SixSix
