2 Abstract The Direct Data Placement protocol provides information to Place the incoming data directly into an upper layer protocol's receive buffer without intermediate buffers. This removes excess CPU and memory utilization associated with transferring data through the intermediate buffers.
A Remote Direct Memory Access Protocol Specification Status of This Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this… (More)
Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups. Note that other groups may also distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts. Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is… (More)
Virtualizing resources for easy pooling and accounting, as well as for rapid provisioning and release, is essential for the effective management of modern data centers. Although the compute and storage resources can be virtualized quite effectively, a comprehensive solution for network virtualization has yet to be developed. Our analysis of the requirements… (More)
In order to facilitate the availability of and access to spatial data, Spatial Data Infra-structures must set up a series of services to be reused by their community of users in the construction of different applications and value-added services. One of the key elements to exploit the resources provided by these infrastructures is to facilitate a catalog of… (More)
—Server virtualization has brought about tremendous value to a modern computing landscape and in particular to data center and cloud infrastructures. Virtual server deployments have become ubiquitous in many development and production sites, in cloud infrastructures and in disaster recovery solutions. Network connectivity is a vital aspect of modern… (More)
Software defined networking (SDN) represents a new approach in which the decision-making process of the network is moved from distributed network devices to a logically centralized controller, implemented as software running on commodity servers. This enables more automation and optimization of the network and, when combined with software defined compute… (More)
Enterprise and technical customers place a diverse set of requirements on server I/O networks. In the past, no single network type has been able to satisfy all of these requirements. As a result several fabric types evolved and several interconnects emerged to satisfy a subset of the requirements. Recently several technologies have emerged that enable a… (More)
