The Technical Cloud: When Remote 3D Visualization meets HPC
SESSION: HPC in the Cloud and Advanced Technologies
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 11:30AM - 12:00PM
Data access speed, rapid obsolescence, heat, noise, application availability are just some of the issues of current workstation-based Technical users (designers, engineers, scientists, etc.) face in their pre-post processing activities. In other IT domains, virtualization and remote desktop solutions today address most of these issues, but it is not broadly applied to Technical Computing because in traditional VDIs the GPU cannot be virtualized and shared among users. NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) address these limitations and allows technical users to run fully accelerated, off-the-shelf OpenGL applications on Windows or Linux in a right-sized "virtual workstation" on or near the HPC system. In this "Technical Cloud" pixels are tranferred instead of data, boosting application performance, security and manageability. We will analyze multiple usage scenarios, including physical and virtual deployments with dedicated GPU, shared GPU as well as acceleration by an external "GPU appliance".
