RFC: Network Plugin Architecture (NPA) for vmxnet3
Device passthrough technology allows a guest to bypass the hypervisor and drive the underlying physical device. VMware has been exploring various ways to deliver this technology to users in a manner which is easy to adopt. In this process we have prepared an architecture along with Intel - NPA (Network Plugin Archi... 10 May 2010 17:40
