I am running 14 virtual machines (ram = 2048MB and 1 virtual processor each) on physical host running 2008 r2 running Hyper-V processor is Intel Xeon 2.27 GHZ 2 processors, RAM 128Gb, 64-bit OS). I need ideas as to why running 14 machines are much slower than running 7 machines. What are your recommendations to speed up the processing power to support 14 machines? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
