Learn how CannonDesign leverages a multiuser VR environment to create shared experiences for collaboration in architectural building models. During this presentation, we''ll cover the build of the environment, basic configuration, and how it was put into production. We''ll also explore an overview of some of the software being used, and use cases for both local and remote collaboration.
About a year ago, CannonDesign embarked on a journey to relocate and upgrade its entire data center, implementing NVIDIA GRID technology, to allow us to collaborate on architectural and engineering design projects throughout all of our offices worldwide. Now we're using our graphics-intensive applications on virtual desktops in our new data center. The design of the infrastructure and implementation of the migration was not without its hurdles, but we're here to share our journey. We'll give some insight into our designs for the virtual desktops, how the machines performed compared to our initial benchmarks, lessons learned, recommendations of tweaks we made, and a glimpse into some of our future plans. If you're planning a virtual desktop infrastructure, interested in creating a virtual environment designed around graphics-intensive applications, or are looking to upgrade and tweak your current environment, come learn from our journey.
