In computing, virtualization provides the capability to service users with different resource requirements and operating system platform needs on a single host computer system. The potential benefits of virtualization include efficient resource utilization, flexible service offering, as well as scalable system planning and expansion, all desirable whether it is for enterprise level data centers, personal computing, or anything in between. These benefits, however, involve certain costs of performance degradation. This thesis compares the performance costs between two of the most popular and widely-used x86 CPU-based virtualization technologies today in personal computing. The results should be useful for users when determining which virtualization technology to adopt for their particular computing needs.
