How to tune EXSi for NFV workloads

by | Jul 7, 2015

The vSphere VMware ESXi hypervisor has been adjusted to provide high I/O throughput in an efficient way, using less CPU cycles and maintaining power, since it is required by so many workloads.

Telco and NFV application workloads are different from typical Tier I enterprise application workloads. In fact, they tend to be sensitive to latency, instability and often have a high packages rate and high bandwidth.

vSphere ESXi can be tuned specifically for those workloads in order to achieve better performance with NFV.

Bhavesh Davda, Office of CTO of VMware, explains in this whitepaper how to tune this hypervisor, hardware and NFV applications to achieve best performance in ESXi.

Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
