Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d): Enhancing Intel platforms for efficient virtualization of I/O devices
Virtualization solutions allow multiple operating systems and applications to run in independent partitions all on a single computer.
Systems that support isolated execution of code within protected hardware partitions are now available using Intel® Trusted Execution Technology.
To VT-D or Not to VT-D? A guide on whether to Utilize Direct Device Attach in your Virtualized System?Intel VT-D Direct Device Attach allows a Virtual Machine to control an entire PCI-E device (e.g. NIC) while bypassing any VMM interference. The performance benefit will be a dramatic reduction in CPU utilization, but the precise gain will vary.
Today’s IT departments must deal with not only the need to deliver an increasingly complex set of services but also the responsibility to protect the organization as a whole from escalating securit
The digital random number generator (DRNG) behind Intel® Data Protection Technology with Secure Key provides high-quality random numbers that are accessible via the CPU instruction RDRAND.
