  • I/O holds up the traffic in virtual systems

    White Papers // Oct 2011 // provided by Intel

    We can now host 512 virtual machines on a single physical server. That's a lot of virtual machines trying to squeeze a lot of I/O out of a single server's networking interfaces. Meanwhile, vSphere 5 is out. It arrived with an indeterminately large quantity of truly outstanding features that were ...

    White Papers // Oct 2011 // provided by Intel

    How do the different types of intrusion prevention system (IPS) work? Inline systems sit on the network like layer-two bridges, passing traffic along as they receive it. Host-based systems sit on the server, watching the traffic that it sends and receives. Both check packets for any suspicious activity, often using ...

  • Storage is ending in tiers

    White Papers // Oct 2011 // provided by Intel

    One basic rule of storage is don't keep items you need to access quickly in hard-to-get-at places: that's like keeping instant coffee in a safe. You suit the storage type to the type of item you want to store. One size does not fit all, and valuable data should not ...

  • Optimize QoS for VMware vSphere 4 with Dell servers and Intel Ethernet

    White Papers // Sep 2011 // provided by Intel

    The industry transition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) has enabled network unification and consolidation, as well as robust support for virtualized usage models. At the same time, however, combining traffic that has been traditionally separated on multiple physical networks and server adapters creates new quality of service (QoS) considerations. This ...
