Programmable chips turning Azure into a supercomputing powerhouse | Ars Technica: "That PCIe interface is shared with the virtual machines directly, giving the virtual machines the power to send and receive network traffic without having to bounce it through the host first. The result? Azure virtual machines can push 25 gigabits per second of network traffic, with a latency of 100 microseconds. That's a tenfold latency improvement and can be done without demanding any host CPU resources."
MSFT rolls out some cool tech.
