Abstract:

Building on the somewhat unlikely success of our vGPU-accelerated Linux virtual desktops, DigitalGlobe is teaming up with NVIDIA and Nutanix to replace an ailing Windows 7 VDI environment that has been unable to keep up with the company's demands of it. As the world leader in commercial satellite imagery and data, DigitalGlobe has continually challenged the limits of virtual desktops. By leveraging NVIDIA GRID technology, we've been able to step beyond niche use-cases for VDI and broaden adoption across the company while leaving multiple avenues open for us to fulfill a rapidly broadening customer base.

Abstract:
DigitalGlobe is in the multi-year process of a company-wide effort to further enable its workforce and its customers to access the world's largest archive of satellite imagery quickly and easily from almost anywhere in the world. We're now several hundred active users into an initiative that has positioned DigitalGlobe's Linux virtual desktop environment as a core requirement for onboarding development teams, rather than just a complement to their Windows VDI sessions. We've gone all-in with Dell and NVIDIA to provide all Linux VDI users with a vGPU-backed desktop to better serve the needs of a rapidly widening array of skillsets and workloads across the enterprise. We'll describe our challenges, our frustrations, our somewhat unexpected popularity and growth, and what has become our continued success.
