Virtual machines are everywhere. If you are running a workload on a cloud environment, even if it is through a remote API, chances are you are using a virtual machine infrastructure underneath. As workloads get more complex and the amount of data processed increases, performance on virtual machines become even more of a challenge. One important way to speed up how you process data on a cloud, not through additional nominal processing power, but by moving data faster between servers, is to use PCI devices directly attached to your virtual machine. This technique is called PCI pass through.
