vSphere U1 Host Utilization VS ESX 3.5 U5, first impressions.

I Rebuilt my last ESX 3.5 Box last night. This box housed our Exchange server, and our Production PACS server. I configured all the data drives to use the Paravirtualization SCSI adapter’s as well. Two 1 TB LUN drives in PACS, and six smaller LUN’s in Exchange.

I had take some screen shots during a busy time when it was running 3.5, and thought it would be fun to compare it to how it runs now on vSphere U1.

Here is before, at a Typical day, running ESX 3.5 U5.

And here is the after running vSphere U1, on a typical busy morning,

Thoughts, and impressions?
