The performance parity between bare-metal and virtualised servers is an accepted fact today. But what about the most demanding applications, such as monster virtual machines running databases and transaction processing applications? Experiments in this paper demonstrate that VMware vSphere 6.0 virtual machines run out of the box at 90% of the performance of native systems even for the most demanding workloads at the highest throughput levels.

Citrix supplies best efforts to ensure compatibility with upcoming database releases. New versions of supported databases (SQL, Oracle, or DB2) released after our products have been released, must work. However, Citrix recommends creating a test environment to ensure there are no unforeseen issues related to changes made to the new version or update of the third-party product. Individuals wishing to use the new release with current Citrix products must perform their own testing before using the platform. Citrix does not support any BETA versions of third-party products. You can find the database chart HERE this document will be updated periodically as new information becomes available.
