Virtual I/O: High-impact Technology - What You Need to Know: Definitions, Adoptions, Impact, Benefits, Maturity, Vendors
Input/output (I/O) virtualization is a methodology to simplify management, lower costs and improve performance of servers in enterprise environments. I/O virtualization environments are created by abstracting the upper layer protocols from the physical connections.
This book is your ultimate resource for Virtual I/O. Here you will find the most up-to-date information, analysis, background and everything you need to know.
