Industry Leaders Red Hat and Neterion Demonstrate Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) at Intel Developers Forum (IDF)

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/22/09 -- Neterion, Inc., the industry leader in I/O Virtualization (IOV) and a leading supplier of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters, today announced that it has partnered with Intel and Red Hat to demonstrate the advanced I/O Virtualization technology -- SR-IOV at IDF in San Francisco. This is the industry's first SR-IOV demonstration leveraging Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel® VT-d), the advanced virtualization capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 5.4 and Neterion's X3100 10GbE adapter.

This demonstration illustrates industry leaders' collaboration on bringing the platform, software, and hardware together for an end-to-end I/O virtualization solution stack. Until now server virtualization was focused on virtualizing a large number of under utilized servers onto a single efficiently utilized physical server. However, I/O intensive applications could not be virtualized because the penalty in lost throughput performance and the latency was too high a cost to pay to allow virtualization. The industry leaders are demonstrating that SR-IOV provides equivalent 10GbE line rate throughput with low latency compared to native (non-virtualized) OS systems. This highlights that The Missing Piece of Virtualization® is in place and IT managers can achieve the agility and robustness that virtualization can deliver even when running I/O intensive applications in a virtualized environment. The demonstration is based on the Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) SR-IOV industry standard and leverages Intel's Xeon 5500 platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualization solution and Neterion's X3100 10 GbE adapter.

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 provides a single deployment platform capable of running on virtual machines or stand alone servers or even on hosted clouds. This configuration independence allows IT managers to migrate applications more rapidly from native OS to fully virtualized environments to realize the benefits of virtualization enabled by advanced IOV technologies including SR-IOV," said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. "Neterion's Hypervisor Offload (Hy-O)(TM)capability in the X3100 series is a key element in the demonstration and shows that even I/O intensive applications can realize significant benefits from virtualization. An easier transition will help to break down barriers to virtualization adoption and to drive server virtualization in the data center."

"The I/O performance has become a major barrier for virtualization adoption in data centers for I/O intensive, latency sensitive workloads and enterprise tier one applications," said Jim Pappas, Director Industry Initiatives, Intel Corporation. "Our enabling focus with the industry and IHVs such as Neterion, is to remove this barrier through implementation of Intel® VT-d and PCI-SIG SR-IOV to enable near native I/O performance for virtualized servers. Now that we have practically eliminated the virtualization performance penalty, every server in the data center can receive the benefits of being virtualized and data centers will become more efficient and green."

"The missing piece to the virtualization puzzle, I/O virtualization, has now being filled in," said Greg Scherer, Chief Technology Office, Neterion Inc. "Intel's VT-d technology, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4, and Neterion's X3100 together provide the industry the last puzzle piece. The ecosystem is ready to deploy in production."

At IDF these three industry leaders are demonstrating products which enable a virtual machine to deliver the throughput and latency that was previously available only in non-virtualized native OS environments.
