VMworld US 2016 Buzz: Office of the CTO Stand: Enabling vMotion with Passthrough SR-IOV Network Devices for Latency Sensitive Apps

Adding some more colour to the highlights from my VMworld US 2016 coverage:

I made a point as I always do at VMworld to head to the VMware Office of the CTO booth to have a glimpse into the future. I spoke to Xin Xu.

Currently VMware has a number of features for allowing latency sensitive apps to have a more direct path to the hardware which obviously speeds things up. However this breaks some other useful functionality. VMware is working on allowing vMotion for latency sensitive apps when using SR-IOV Network devices.
