Converged fabric and multi-tenancy pose new challenges in the data center where businesses are required to provide predictable network performance and SLAs. Today, a common solution is costly hardware overprovisioning and complex wiring. In this session, we will describe how Windows Server 8 enables data centers to use QoS and DCB-capable hardware to guarantee network bandwidth to a service. Because Windows Server 8 provides predictable network performance in a converged fabric environment, businesses will be able to virtualize and consolidate network I/O intensive workloads on a single 10GbE NIC thereby reducing costs and improving service. Partners, through familiar PowerShell and WMI interfaces, will be able to integrate these QoS features to provide a better service on Windows Server 8.

For performance-critical apps, every microsecond saved means money. Windows Server 8 makes it possible to increase throughput, handle higher message rates, reduce latency and jitter, and lower CPU usage, all with standard server hardware. The new Registered I/O (RIO) model in Windows 8 delivers a low-latency solution while maintaining on-the-wire compatibility with existing TCP and UDP protocols. Additionally, a new fast path loopback allows high-speed apps to achieve a higher level of performance. Attend this session to learn how to program and tune these new capabilities and to witness them in action.
