Virtualization for MySQL on VMware

originally blogged by Tino Rachui

In case you have missed this. There exist a document "Virtualization for MySQL on VMware: Best Practices and Performance Guide" which provides a comparison of virtualized MySQL Server instances running on VMware ESX with non-virtualized MySQL Server instances running on bare-metal. Additionally the document contains "Best Practice" configurations for running MySQL Server on VMware ESX. Please note that the document is about MySQL Server and not MySQL Cluster which has to run on bare-metal.

Why is this all important in the context of VDI 3.x? You should have heard meanwhile that Sun VDI 3.x is making use of MySQL to host the VDI configuration. Secondly for the VDI Single Host configuration which we have introduced with VDI 3 Patch 2 you have to use a MySQL Server. With the ability to run MySQL Server in a virtualized environment you also gain the possibility to run the whole VDI Single Host configuration in a virtualized environment. You have to play with it a little bit though as we haven't tested this particular configuration extensively in our labs yet.
