In this Developer Summit article: http://proceedings.esri.com/library/userconf/devsummit10/tech/tech_12.html

Page 50 and 51 speak to performance degradation using various configured VMs compared to a physical 1P_4C_16R server.

Is this suggesting that a 4V_1C_2R, with 4 SOCs, performs ~11% worse than a "single machine (SOC, SOM, WS) ArcGIS Server deployment" on a 1P_4C_16R?
