I would like to see a utilization comparison between 12.1 SEPM installed on a windows XP box and a server box.  This would help IT departments to develop and improve the security infrastructure.  The need of tools and reports to sell the purchase of new equipment is hard to find and for small companies it is imperative.  These tools could help to convince upper management to make the purchases needed to be more secure and up to date.

Thanks for sharing, but take results with pinch of salt - comparing apples with pears - similar but not he same -  you should also consider IO not over the large period of time, but how long it stresses each VM for and what impact this has.

We got our fingers burnt with SEP 11.x active scans within our VDI environment, glad to see vendors are looking at virtualisation more and should all be sorted soon.
