Learn about Open Platform for Network Functions Virtualization* (OPNFV*), how it relates to Intel® Open Network Platform (Intel® ONP), and how Intel is contributing to OPNFV.
Intel® Graphics Virtualization Technology (Intel® GVT) is an extension of Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for Directed I/O (Intel® VT-d) that provides hardware accelerated I/O virtualization support for Intel® HD graphics - it is one of the GPU virtualization solutions. Intel GVT allows the Virtual Machine (VM) to call a GPU function via I/O. Only one VM can use the GPU at a given...
This paper is a result of a joint CERN openlab-Intel research activity with the aim to investigate whether Linux Containers can be used together with SR-IOV in conjunction and complementary to the existing virtualization infrastructure in the CERN Data Centre. This solution could be potentially applied to the storage nodes, which are principally used for Input/Output operations, while keeping the...
2015 Intel® Buzz Workshop San Francisco had a great turnout! In addition to the panels and technical sessions for game developers, a Game Developer Showcase contest was held where developers could pitch their games to a panel of judges and an audience of peers. At this year’s Game Developer Showcase, a virtual reality (VR) game entitled Bazaar from Temple Gates Games won. The game is a surrealist...

This article walks you through configuration of OVS with DPDK for inter-VM application use cases. Create an OVS vSwitch bridge with two DPDK vhost-user port, each connected to a separate VM, then use a simple iperf3 throughput test to evaluate performance.
This article steps you through getting started with the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), including building and testing a sample application, l2fwd. It then introduces you to the Data Plane Performance Demonstrator.
