Links of the day 12/10/2015: virtual cores, nvdimm for qemu and driver queue splitting


  • VISC : update on the virtual core technology by soft machine. Interesting concept, however like the Itanium, really hard to pull off as it requires a specific combination of software and hardware to work. Lets see if they fare better than Intel in that domain.
  • Queue splitting: want to use DPDK for some traffic and the rest go through the standard stack? checkout the bifurcated drivers!
  • NVDIMM and persistent memory in QEMU : cool talk about persistent memory tech for virtualization. This open up a whole new realm of possibility.
