Abstract
Virtual machine technologies offer simple and practical
mechanisms to address many manageability problems in
database systems. For example, these technologies allow
for server consolidation, easier deployment, and more flex-
ible provisioning. Therefore, database systems are increas-
ingly being run on virtual machines. This offers many op-
portunities for researchers in self-managing database sys-
tems, but it is also important to understand the cost of virtu-
alization. In this paper, we present an experimental study of
the overhead of running a database workload on a virtual
