How to build and run Xen clients that can recognize Intel(R) Xeon Phi(tm) Coprocessor
In an earlier post, I mentioned that the Open Source at Intel website was going to have several focused topics about the intersection of Cloud Computing, Virtualization and Open Source. I wanted to highlight a few of those new topics here in this blog post.
Cloud Computing Spotlight: Virtualization's Next Frontier
With Gartner putting virtualization in the number 1 spot of their Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2009, virtualization has been getting quite a bit of attention. I tend to think about server virtualization, which is where most of the buzz has been, but part of Gartner's reason for putting it at the top of the list is because they also see virtualization in storage and client devices growing rapidly along with server virtualization.
Today is the second anniversary of the Sun and Intel joint agreement to optimize the Solaris operating system for Intel Xeon processors. Like last year, when I wrote this summary of our work, I decided to recap where we are to date.
Like last year’s edition, this is pretty much off the top of my head.
Another in the series of 5-minute videos on OpenSolaris and Xeon Processors.
This one is about the details in our work on the Intel Core i7 processor, previously known as the codename "Nehalem". The community has been busting hump all year with a laser focus on optimizing OpenSolaris and Solaris for Nehalem. And why not? The architecture has some truly new and exciting advancements for Intel.
Hope you like it - appreciate your comments.
