Operational flexibility and deployment are increasingly managed through VMs or similar environments. In the past it has been reported that certain VM environments have a very negative impact in DNS server performance. Here, we present the results of QPS performance of several current authoritative DNS servers running in traditional and contained or virtualised environments to evaluate their relative merits and tradeoffs in real operational use.
