Top of Rack I/O Virtualization Solutions
One of the basic truths about building clouds is that the only thing changing faster than technologies are business opportunities. The goal for cloud deployments is always to build out the infrastructure first, but have the ability to easily adapt to changing conditions, taking advantage of new opportunities as they arise.
Cloud service providers can leverage the power of vNET I/O Maestro to help them quickly deliver cloud services to their customers while holding back the high cost of networking. With the ability to virtualize the I/O controllers, moving them to the top of the rack, cloud providers can easily deploy and provision new servers, bringing them on in minutes. In the cloud world, where providers need to minimize the window between capital outlay and time to revenue, being able to provision a server before it physically even arrives means that growing clouds can keep pace with user needs.
With vNET, cloud providers can aggregate and pool the top of rack networking and storage switches into an easier to manage I/O appliance that provides all of the bandwidth that the rack of servers demands. With both dual port 10GbE and dual port 8Gb Fibre Channel adapters, the vNET I/O Maestro delivers up to 160Gb/s of I/O bandwidth up to the core networking and storage fabrics.
Because of the density of most cloud deployments, the power efficiency of a NextIO solution can bring customers a tremendous savings in operating expenses, dropping the power consumed by I/O devices in the rack by up to 58% in some cases. In a world where clouds rapidly scale up, this frees valuable power headroom within the rack and provides more opportunity for future growth and expansion without tapping out the limits of the power distribution in the rack.
