Join Mike Coleman, Sr. Product Manager User Experience at VMware to understand how virtualized 3D graphics can benefit your entire user base - from knowledge workers to high-end design engineers.
NVIDIA and VMware have built a platform that allows the toughest workloads to be virtualized, while improving reliability and security. From software-based GPUs to shared graphics to dedicated virtual workstations, there is an option for every use case and budget.
Specific topics include:
• What is VMware Horizon View and what benefits does it bring to the desktop?
• How are 3D graphics implemented in VMware Horizon View, including the latest joint announcements from VMware and NVIDIA?
• What use cases can be addressed with virtualized 3D graphics?
• What customers are using the technology today?
In this session, NVIDIA GRID Community Advisors Ruben Spruijt and Benny Tritsch present their latest findings on benchmarking user experience performance in GRID-accelerated environments hosted on-premises and in the cloud. Get in-depth information on the latest versions of Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, VMware Horizon and Microsoft RDS when accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs. What is the performance impact caused by remoting protocol settings, latency and common WAN scenarios? Hundreds of recorded screen videos and telemetry data sets, combined with a unique visualisation tool, allow Ruben and Benny to analyse and compare the performance of selected GRID-accelerated remote desktops and VDI scenarios, live on stage.
Join an interactive discussion and Q&A session highlighting the design considerations for deployment of 3D remote graphics solutions with a focus on end-user experience as applied for use with CAD/CAM. Designing for user experience should include considerations for availability, performance, and personalization. Explore the different use cases for Citrix and VMware as applied for use with Autodesk AutoCAD, Dassault Catia, PTC ProEngineer, and Siemens NX. Included will be demonstrated tuning of Dassault Systèmes Catia V6 for Citrix XenDesktop, massive WriteCache design consideration for ANSYS, how to design for user concurrency without sacrificing performance or user experience, and VMware vGPU design considerations in regards to Autodesk on VMware Horizon View.
The panel will share their experiences and insights gained on transforming their business by moving 3D workstations to the data center with NVIDIA GRID and VMware Horizon. Hear actual customers speaking about their real world use of NVIDIA GRID vWorkstations and vGPU. Audience is invited to ask questions of the panel as well.
Learn why EVERY remote user should have GPU resources available to them. We'll discuss the advantages end-users experience once their virtual desktops/sessions have GPU capabilities. Recent data from the NVIDIA GRID Performance Engineering team shows a significant impact GPUs like the Tesla M10 has on knowledge workers. The data includes real user testing and scientific data like latency, bandwidth, and CPU utilization, which all play a significant role in the overall user experience.
Discover the benefits of virtualizing any desktop or application using VMware Horizon and NVIDIA GRID. Learn about how NVIDIA GRID and VMware Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport now delivers a transformational user experience for LAN and WAN users, understanding graphics use cases enabled by Blast Extreme, NVIDIA GRID Performance Engineering benchmarking and results for Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport, and high-performance graphics environment demos (considering SxS for this) deployment and TCO considerations.
Have you ever wondered if you could run your graphics-intensive applications such as Siemens NX and Siemens Team Center in your enterprise cloud? Would it perform the same as on your powerful workstation on your desk? Join this session and hear about the journey from 16 desktops in a cooling container to 2500+ virtual desktops and how Siemens transformed virtual clients from being just an extra desktop to a business-critical service using VMware Horizon View and Nvidia GRID to meet the demands of a global, anytime, anywhere workforce that is no longer tethered to location or hardware.
When talking about GPU benchmarking and making the right choice of GPU for your organisation or workload, you'll probably think of using fancy benchmark tools. But there is a much more fun and low-cost way to do so. This session is about how to benchmark and make a GPU choice with the game Skyrim. It's a very low level way of testing using the NVIDIA-smi on the hypervisor and Powershell in the Windows VDI. Make your own charts with the information you collect yourself. This session is based on Windows 10 VDI, and VMware vSphere 6.7.
During this session, attendees will discover the benefits of virtualising any desktop or application using VMware Horizon.
In this hands on tutorial session attendees will learn how to install, configure and use GRID based servers in both VMware ESX and Citrix XenServer environments.
VMware Horizon View combined with NVIDIA GRID and Quadro GPUs can now deliver the most flexible and scalable virtual 3D graphics architecture to power users, designers and demanding 3D workstation class applications to support the modern flexible work force. More and more organizations are looking to enable an ever more remote workforce but with the security and data compliance. Until recently, remote workforce was limited to knowledge workers and office applications, but with the latest advances in virtualized graphics and virtual desktop integration from NVIDIA and VMware, organizations can enable workers in local high speed offices or in home offices access to high performance 3D applications with all data being stored securely in your private cloud.
Join Steve Harpster, Solution Architect, NVIDIA, for this technical webinar and learn how to set up NVIDIA GRID with VMware Horizon View vDGA. You’ll also discover how to optimize the virtual machines to get the best performance for your demanding 3D workloads and what to consider when planning for scalability and density.Key takeways from the webinar include:- Why GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) help in virtual desktops and applications- How to demo, pilot and deploy GPU-accelerated virtual desktops & applications- Tips and tricks for tuning GRID enabled virtual machines- Planning and guidance for the right virtual machine setup based on common applications
Discussion and demonstration of the potential with running HPC, and VDI workloads on common clusters for a modern a datacenter Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde scenario. Explore the coexistence of CUDA based HPC or Deep Learning job engines in conjunction with both Linux and Windows machines used for virtual desktop infrastructure. The demonstration will focus on a very minimal VMware vSphere cluster deployment using VSAN storage or RedHat RHVM cluster deployment to host both the Linux HPC multi node cluster for CUDA workloads and a VMware Horizon view or Citrix XenDesktop deployment for Linux and Windows Virtual Desktops performing DirectX, OpenGL, OpenCL, and CUDA based visualization workloads as used by engineering and analysis power users.
