    You made my day, I am really happy to hear that! Such testing and
    benchmarking should be done by an independent third party, and IBM fits
    that requirement just fine. It all makes much sense for everybody who's

    If it will be opened (not just results, but also the processes and
    tools), and all the projects will be able to contribute and help, that
    would be just great. We do a lot of testing in-house, and will be happy
    to contribute to such an independent testing/benchmarking project.

    Speaking of live migration, we in OpenVZ plan to release our
    implementation as soon as next week.
