Waiting on IO: The Straw That Broke Virtualization's Back
As technology changes, more and more organizations are harnessing Parallel IO technologies in virtualization especially for heavy online transactional processing (OLTP) apps, databases and mainstream IO-intensive workloads. The parallel IO technology designed to process IO across many cores are putting the idle CPUs to work.
Hence for a long term success in this highly complex area, you need to:
The major factors of loss in virtualized I/O performance
The Powerful multicore/ parallel processing infrastructure
Software-defined storage and parallel IO software technology
In this whitepaper, we will discuss the underlying parallel architecture’s evolution over the years and how it resulted in a markedly different way to address the craving for IOPS (input/output operations per second) in a software-defined world.
