As announced on the Dell Tech Center blog, Violin Systems set another virtualization performance record in the latest VMmark 2.1 benchmark result.

The combination of Violin 6616 flash memory arrays and Dell PowerEdge R720 servers achieved a score of 11.39 @ 10 tiles, topping the best published 32-core VMmark 2.1.1 results from Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM published just a day earlier.
