Taking Virtual Graphics to Eleven
Abstract:
Autodesk has many well known, and large products. Our Engineering and Development teams run development and testing across a wide variety of operating systems, and across versions of current, and older products. Many Developers have secondary systems, or in some cases 3, 4 and beyond. Most systems had high end NVIDIA graphics cards. As is the nature of development, these secondary and other systems were used in cycles. Often lying idle for weeks at a time. And despite the need for graphics in our products, we found that developers only used 50% of their graphics resources in their development cycle. By virtualizing those additional workstations, the graphics, cpu and other resources were used more efficiently. And, by not replacing the physical systems every 3 years, our cost avoidance rose rapidly. By early 2017, we were hearing from our customers that they wanted Autodesk to provide the same kind of service to them. We are in Pilot with a Platform that will provide this service to our Enterprise customers. Behind the successful virtualization of desktops is a people story. Mindsets, culture and skill sets had to evolve and change.
