How thermal paste can impact VM performance

On twitter a tweet from Frank flew by pointing to an article which was written by one of my VMware colleagues: Matt Bradford aka @VMSpot. I hadn’t seen the article, while it was written in 2014 and I am surprised it never caught more attention. Matt describes in his post how the use and placement of thermal paste can influence VM performance. Who would have thought of that, and I am seriously impressed they managed to get to the bottom of this!

VMware NSX is completely software based. This means it’s flexible as heck and you can have a lot of instances running concurrently. It also means you can go crazy with your network topology designs and amount of tinkering you can do with your virtual network. I am someone who loves to tinker. Sometimes a bit too much. A consequence of this, is that I sometimes break my virtual test lab and have to re-install it and return to the starting point. This has happened a few times.

A VIB is abbreviation for vSphere Installation Bundle. A VIB is an ESXi software package. VMware and its partners package solutions, drivers, CIM providers, and applications that extend the ESXi platform as VIB’s. You can use VIB’s to create and customize ISO images or to upgrade ESXi hosts by installing VIB’s onto the hosts.
