It is totally unfair to compare full virtualization solution such as OpenVZ
with sync on VE stop (for quotas consistency) and which doesn't require shared storage for migration
with POC which uses shared storage in the paper.

I'm not sure why author didn't pay attention to these HUGE differences in configuration...
Maybe because 1100x times is so incredible :@)

Thanks,
