Virtualization is the most emerging topic of this decade that has transformed the way the IT infrastructure is deployed. Virtualization is capturing the IT industry and replacing the physical environment with the virtual one. Thus, before switching to virtualization it is very essential for an organization to evaluate the performance of the virtual environment. In this paper, the performance of virtual and physical environment is evaluated. Two types of hypervisors i. e. VMWare ESXi 5 and Hyper V Windows Server 2012 are used in order to create the virtual environment. The performance of the two hypervisors used to create the virtual environment is also compared and evaluated. The performance evaluation is done with the help of benchmarking tools.
