The networking world is rife with buzz words like SDN, NFVs, Cloud, and Virtualized everything for network switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, web servers, and other communication functions. Commodity NICs can replace expensive, specialized hardware devices for much less cost and can easily be reconfigured as requirements change. When you are ready for SDN/NFV, where to start, what to...
One Stop for Optimizing Your Data Center From AI to Big Data to HPC: End-to-end Solutions
When running in a virtual machine, you may never be sure which physical CPU you are running on - hypervisor can pass anything as CPUID to guests. For best performance, it helps to use the best instruction set supported by a physical CPU - be it AVX512, AVX2, AVX, SSE4.1, AES-NI, or other accelerated instruction sets. Enhanced Platform Awareness features use top-down approach to close this gap,...
