The deployment of server virtualization technologies in data centers requires significant efforts in providing sufficient network I/O bandwidth to satisfy the demand of virtualized applications and services. For example, every virtualized system can host several dozen network applications and services, and each of these services requires certain bandwidth (or speed) to function properly. Furthermore, because of different network traffic patterns relevant to different service types, these traffic flows may interfere with each other, leading to serious network problems including the inability...

In 2002, IBM® revolutionized the server industry when it announced a new hardware platform that was based upon a modular chassis design, the IBM BladeCenter®. The platform was a radical departure from existing server architectures in that it leveraged universal components, shared with servers contained with a chassis, that could be upgraded or replaced over time. Through the use of "blade" style server slots and I/O expansion bays, servers within the chassis could connect to a vast array of networking and storage options. In 2007, IBM once again set a new standard with the...
