Exploring the GPU Architecture and why we need it.


A Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) is mostly known for the hardware device used when running applications that weigh heavy on graphics, i.e. 3D modeling software or VDI infrastructures. In the consumer market, a GPU is mostly used to accelerate gaming graphics. Today, GPGPU’s (General Purpose GPU) are the choice of hardware to accelerate computational workloads Read more...

ESXi Network Troubleshooting Tools


In the previous post about the ESXi network IOchain we explored the various constructs that belong to the network path. This blog post builds on top of that and focuses on the tools for advanced network troubleshooting and verification. Today, vSphere ESXi is packaged with a extensive toolset that helps you to check connectivity or Read more...

Understanding the ESXi Network IOChain


In this blog post, we go into the trenches of the (Distributed) vSwitch with a focus on vSphere ESXi network IOChain. It is important to understand the core constructs of the vSphere networking layers for i.e. troubleshooting connectivity issues. In a second blog post on this topic, we will look closer into virtual network troubleshoot tooling. Read more...
