Solving I/O Bottlenecks to Enable Superior Cloud Efficiency

Version 1

    This white paper has a section on SR-IOV that mentions... "Some demanding applications such as databases, low-latency messaging and data intensive workloads may require bare metal performance and would need to bypass the hypervisor completely when issuing I/O. Mellanox ConnectX® supports multiple physical functions on the same adapter and SR-IOV (Single

    Root I/O Virtualization), allowing direct mapping of VMs to I/O adapter resources, bare metal performance

    and zero hypervisor CPU overhead."
