Many applications are being deployed on the cloud because virtualization provides inexpensive virtual machines which are easy to create and use. To perform benchmark in scale, one has to rely on virtualization. Virtualization itself, however affects the performance of the database systems. In this thesis, we investigate the unanticipated effects of the virtualization on the database systems by running experiments on virtual machines. The results of our experiments indicate that the performance of a virtual machine is highly influenced by the host machine.
