The networking performance available to Virtual Machines (VMs) can be low due to the inefficiencies of transferring network packets between the host domain and guests. This can limit the application-level performance of VMs on a 10 Gb/s network. SR-IOV capable network devices offer the benefits of direct I/O throughput and reduced CPU utilization while greatly increasing the scalability and sharing capabilities of the device. SR-IOV allows the benefits of the paravirtualized driver’s throughput increase and additional CPU usage reductions in HVMs (Hardware Virtual Machines).  SR-IOV uses direct I/O assignment of a network device to multiple VMs, maximizing the potential for using the full bandwidth capabilities of the network device, as well as enabling unmodified guest OS based device drivers which will work for different underlying VMMs.
