VMReady: Virtual Machine-Aware Networking

Data centers are undergoing monumental paradigm shifts. Servers and more importantly the services they provide are expected to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by design.

However, as demand for greater processing continues to outstrip available floor space, rack space, power and air-conditioning, the market has turned to virtualization to efficiently use the resources available.
