Improve network application responsiveness with more efficient data movement and reduced system overhead. Today's multi-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network adapters deliver enormous data flows that require advanced server I/O subsystems to avoid performance bottlenecks.
Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT), a component of Intel® Virtualization Technology for Connectivity, improves data flow across the platform to enhance system performance.
Server consolidation requires large numbers of virtual machines (VMs) per physical server. Intel I/OAT helps ensure that the resulting data traffic doesn't overwhelm server I/O.
Together, these capabilities work in concert to address data-flow bottlenecks across the platform.
Intel I/OAT is actually a set of technologies that each contributes to increased performance.
The features of Intel I/OAT enhance data acceleration across the computing platform.
