Deploying Extremely Latency-Sensitive Applications in VMware vSphere 5.5

Performance demands of latency-sensitive applications have long been thought to be incompatible with virtualization. Such applications as distributed in-memory data management, stock trading, and high-performance computing (HPC) demand very low latency or jitter, typically of the order of up to tens of microseconds. Although virtualization brings the benefits of simplifying IT management and saving costs, the benefits come with an inherent overhead due to abstracting physical hardware and resources and sharing them.
