Thanks for tuning in to our newest installment of info for those of you seeking to know more about 3D graphics in virtual desktops. We’ve got a webinar coming up with our friends at NVIDIA and a cool new demo video. Don’t miss the registration info at the bottom of this post!
Well-known independent virtualization consultants @TeamRGE have been busy with some new videos showing what VDI and desktop virtualization used with GPU acceleration technologies such as NVIDIA vGPU and GPU-passthrough for VDI and XenApp GPU sharing can do. Their goal was to demonstrate the power and use cases of 2D, 3D, graphics in a Virtual Desktop environment.
Yesterday saw TeamRGE release a new demo video featuring:
- Citrix XenDesktop and XenServer with HDX 3D Pro
- NVIDIA GRID GPUs
- HP DL380z Gen8 Virtual Workstation (check out our certification review, here)
With some awesome applications such as:
This first recording is available online and can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/LGeU6rFij3Q, there are rumours there may be a lot more to come
I’m particularly pleased to see Lightworks amongst the technologies demo’d, whilst they may not be the most familiar end-consumer brand in 3D, they produce a key, cutting-edge, widely used rendering technologies and partnered with major vendors like Dassault, Autodesk, Intel and NVIDIA. This is rendering at its best and concentrating on the key CAD and 3D component technologies such as those from 3DExcite, modelling kernels such as CGM, ACIS and Siemens PLM Parasolid is key to ensuring HDX 3D Pro stays the market leader.
If this has got you interested you can hear more from the guys behind TeamRGE on a webinar next week, with the chance to ask them live Q&A:
NVIDIA GTC Express Webinar – VDWhy, VDCry Avoiding the Pitfalls of Virtualization
Ready to drink from the fire hose? Join us for a 1-hour webinar on July 2nd or July 3rd with Shawn Bass, Benny Tritsch and Ruben Spruijt, like-minded IT professionals who will share their insights, best practices and unfiltered thoughts about Graphics for Virtual Desktops.
The webinar will cover the why and how of VDI as well as various use-case scenarios of graphics for Virtual Desktops. After this webinar you will
- Know how to avoid the common pitfalls of virtualization and start reaping the benefits
- Get an overview of the market space and important players
- Leave with best practices on how to successfully implement Graphics for Virtual Desktops
Shawn, Benny and Ruben base their presentation on extensive industry analysis and in-depth talks with customers. NVIDIA’s virtualization expert Erik Bohnhorst will show how you can deliver true PC graphics-rich experiences to more users for the first time with the NVIDIA GRID solutions. Citrix’s Ben Ward will discuss real-life VDI successes from the field and be ready to answer your questions in the interactive Q&A session.
With our unique content and insights this webinar will be fun and filled with awesome information for everyone interested in Desktop Virtualization.
PS. All participants will receive a free copy of the white paper 3D Graphics for Virtual Desktops Smackdown – a must-read for anyone looking to implement VDI!
