  • Guest post: Intel discusses iSCSI and 1 million IOPs

    Hi, I'm Jordan Plawner, storage networking product planner from Intel. Today I'm doing a recap of the Intel Server and Ethernet Adapters and Windows 2008 R2 1m iSCSI IOPs announcement and HyperV performance webcast. The number of comments and ongoing discussions by end users have been impressive. There were two themes that ran through the blog questions and comments that I want to address. 1st: What does 1 million IOPs on a single 10GbE port performance mean? What this performance means is that you do not have to worry about iSCSI performance. There is no server I/O bottleneck. If you are going with an iSCSI SAN use the native infrastructure built into the server, OS and adapter. If you are deciding between iSCSI and FC, know that at the very least the performance on the client side is a wash. Server-side ease-of-use and cost if unquestionably in ISCSI’s favor.
  • MDOP 2010 Launches, with 64-bit version of App-V 4.6

    Earlier today we announced important updates for IT pros considering Windows 7 deployment. Specifically, we released Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2010, which includes App-V 4.6, supporting Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 for RDS and Office 2010. The App-V support for Office 2010 means you can do a one-touch deployment and don't have to wait for Office 2010 to deploy Windows 7. Additionally we released the MED-V 1.0 SP1 Release Candidate, which creates managed virtual machines running previous versions of Windows and Internet Explorer so users can upgrade to Windows 7. The RTM version of MED-V 1.0 service pack 1 will be available in April, but you can start today by downloading the release candidate.
