It's Time for Disaggregated Silicon!

By Corigine | October 31, 2018

We have seen the value of disaggregation in many areas. Most recently, in the world of networking driven by the OCP community. It has enabled significant choice in how operators procure networking equipment and eliminated vertical, inflexible solutions and vendor lock-in. Is it now time for disaggregation at the silicon level?

The Case for Express Virtio (XVIO) – Part 2

By Corigine | November 08, 2016

In part 1, my colleague Sujal Das reviewed the operational challenges data center operators spoke about at OpenStack Summit last month. The resounding common theme was poor server infrastructure efficiency. Sujal reviewed the underlying reasons for these challenges starting with a wide variety of VM workload requirements including networking options and CPU requirements. This combined with the fac

The Case for Express Virtio (XVIO) – Part 1

By Corigine | November 03, 2016

SmartNIC and XVIO take the operational efficiency of OpenStack cloud server infrastructures to new heights.I am writing this from the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, fresh from speaking to many data center operators who are deploying OpenStack-based clouds. Virtual machines (VM) and applications that run in them form the core building blocks of today’s modern cloud data centers. Revenue from VMs a
