Boosting Networking Performance for Virtualization using SR-IOV

The single-root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) standard allows an I/O device to be shared by multiple Virtual Machines (VMs), without losing runtime performance.  Virtualization architectures which include SR-IOV virtual functions (VFs) are highly portable and agnostic of underlying virtual machines.

DPDK Community Meetup

Silicon Valley DPDK Meetup

This is a group for engineers who enjoy developing applications for high network performance, it is all about plumbing... but for fat pipes!

This is a casual setting to collaborate, discuss, and learn more about DPDK.
Let's meetup and have fun with the Silicon Valley DPDK community, every 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm.

See you there!

Physical server provisioning with OpenStack*

This article explores the internal details of provisioning a physical machine using OpenStack*. Steps for setting up OpenStack are included, and no special hardware is required to begin use. If you already use OpenStack, follow these instructions using the hardware you currently have. If you are new to OpenStack, you will need a commodity access switch and two physical servers with ports connected to a switch that is on the same VLAN or broadcast domain.

    Red Hat and Intel collaborate energetically to ensure that binary code compatibility and optimization to deliver greater agility and lower TCO to customers. That includes optimizing platforms for virtualization and secure cloud computing.  For example, we’ve enabled Intel® Virtualization Technologies in RHEL6, RHEV and the upcoming RHEL7, and we’ve collaborated on Trusted Compute Pools with Open Attestation Technology (OAT) support in Fedora—we’re now working to make it available in the RHEL-OpenStack platform.

    The development of computing and communication systems has gone through a spiral cycle of centralization and decentralization schemas. The earliest telephone network used decentralized point-to-point connections. It moved to centralized switching system as the number of devices increased. The centralized computing and communication systems further moved into a decentralized paradigm, as devices expand and dependability of large systems becomes a dominating factor.
