    Hyper-v or Vmware ? workstation ?
    which driver run the fastest ?

    Thanks

    To reduce ssd's wear i decide to move to ram

    with Vmware and emulator
    4-64kb doing very bad for ram the rest is ok

    from the host

    Please ignore the driver name.

    Ramdisk application: Primo Ramdisk
    Host OS: Windows 7 VMware Workstation 11

    SCSI - 52K From host

    direct [ no SCSI ] - 63K From host
    as-ssd-bench Romex RAMDISK SC 03.05.2015 05-13-03.png
    SCSI VHD - 4K From host
    as-ssd-bench Msft Virtual Dis 03.05.2015 05-17-27.png
    SCSI vmdk - 1K From host
    as-ssd-bench Msft Virtual Dis 03.05.2015 05-37-16.png



    so i guess VHD is the chosen one

    Edit:
    Server 2016 have 71k with new as ssd on direct-io setup
    nested vmware is slow 14mb 4k
