Amazon EC2 各種虛擬化技術的效能

Brendan Gregg 整理了 Amazon EC2 的各種虛擬化技術以及效能的比較:「AWS EC2 Virtualization 2017」,從他做的這張圖可以看到最新的兩個技術 (編號 7 與 8) 的效能相當好:


  • Virtualized in Software: While this can support an unmodified guest OS, many operations are emulated and slow. Apps may run 2x to 10x slower, or worse.
  • Paravirtualization: The hypervisor provides efficient hypercalls, and the guest OS uses drivers and kernel modifications to call these hypercalls. It's using software and coordination between the hypervisor and guest to improve performance. I'd expect measurable overhead of 10% to 50% (depending on the PV type and workload).
  • Virtualized in Hardware: Hardware support for virtualization, and near bare-metal speeds. I'd expect between 0.1% and 1.5% overhead.

用硬體虛擬化的過程... 然後最後也推出 bare metal 的機器 XD

新版 Instagram 將可以看到影片播放次數了

Mashable 的報導說下個版本的 Instagram 將會提供影片播放次數資訊了:「Instagram videos will get cool new updates to let you see how popular you are」。

The number of times a video is viewed on Instagram will soon no longer be a mystery.

Instagram is adding a new feature that will tally view counts much like parent company Facebook already does, eliminating a major blindspot for marketers attempting to tap into the app's 400-million strong audience organically.

愈來愈多 social network 往 video 這塊著力...
