    Maybe it's just me, but i think it would be interesting to benchmark this against older verions of VMware, Hyper-V.
    This way we could 'see' if it was worth the change.

      As far as I remebber VMWare doesn't allow benchmarks.
      Last time Michael did a Xeon vs. KVM benchmark, KVM was faster, but as far as I remember the gap was later closed by a series of Xen fixes.
      In my experience HyperV on Windows servers is (considerably) slower than them both - especially when it comes to IO.

        Thanks for the input.
        IO is actually my problem with HyperV!...
        I'll try to make some time to test myself and see if it's worth it.
