Abstract—Different workloads utilize system resources at different levels. Depending on the resource utilization pattern some workloads may be better suited for hosting on virtual platform. This study is intended to compare how different workloads such as Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), Web and Email applications perform on virtual and non virtual environments. Performance testing is very important in the software development life cycle of a Product. This work gives very exposure to the Customer and software testing professional about the usage and effectiveness of the Design of Experiments in software testing.
