The first thing I noticed at Microsoft Ignite this year is that Win10 is all about the user experience: apps, OS, data and access all flowing together to present a seamless, continuously updated workstream.AMD was there to support Microsoft’s preview announcements of GPU-enabled NVv4 instances in Azure and the NV Series in Azure Stack. We have worked with Azure to enable GPU Partitioning, which allows a GPU to be subdivided into portions that can be assigned independently to a VM. The second thing I noticed is that cloud adoption is all about the deployment experience, which is where our friends at Citrix come in.

Essential things to know about container networking

Article | March 8, 2020

Containers have emerged over the past several years to provide an efficient method of storing and delivering applications reliably across different computing environments. By containerizing an application platform and its dependencies, differences in OS distributions and underlying infrastructures are abstracted away. Networking has emerged as a critical element within the container ecosystem, providing connectivity between containers running on the same host as well as on different hosts, says Michael Letourneau, an IT architect at Liberty Mutual Insurance. "Putting an application into a container automatically drives the need for network connectivity for that container," says Letourneau, whose primary focus is on building and operating Liberty Mutual's container platform.

That’s when the company’s new fee structure kicks in for hypervisor products that run multiple operating systems on a single piece of silicon. Some multinationals could face significant price increases under the new structure. The Dell EMC subsidiary changed license fees for its Vsphere hypervisor kit. Instead of charging per CPU socket for motherboard connections, it will now base its fee on the number of cores in the CPU.
