The Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is a key ingredient addressing the data plane needs of Telecom and Networking applications implemented on general purpose processors. It is an optimized library in Linux User Space offering a higher level of packet processing throughput than standard Linux network interfaces.
IDC recently reported that 70 percent of survey respondents identified concerns about security as one of their top three challenges or obstacles to implementing cloud computing solutions. In overcoming those concerns and enabling the hosting of all workloads, including those that depend on sensitive information, robust security mechanisms play a vital role.
Out of many cool things you could do with the Intel® Galileo development board is to use it as a wireless access point. Actually, I'm writing this blog connected to the internet via a Intel® Galileo powered access point.
As an OpenStack gold member and Top 10 contributor, Intel leads blueprints for:
- CPU Feature Detection
- PCIe SR-IOV Accelerators
- OVF Meta-Data Import
- Intelligent workload scheduling—enhanced usage statistics allow advanced scheduling decisions
- Filter scheduling in Cinder—enables differentiated service with different storage back-ends
Traditional business models, built on graphics and visualization usages such as workstation remoting, VDI, DaaS, transcoding, media streaming, and on-line gaming, are beginning to draw open source attention, worldwide. Employees are becoming mobile. They want flexibility of working from any device, anywhere, anytime, with any data, without any compromise in the quality due to access, latency or visualization.
Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) contributions from Intel and others to the OpenStack* cloud operating environment enable fine-grained matching of workload requirements to platform capabilities, prior to launching a virtual machine. For example, EPA can automatically launch a cryptographic workload on a platform with a hardware-based crypto-accelerator.
In the last week, the team has been hard at work and today we have many more features to announce. First, I want to thank everyone running Mesh servers and are giving us feedback. Many more bugs and fixes have been fixed because of reports and more to come as we are working on a new release of the Mesh agent. Today, we got 3 big ticket items to present.
