Graphics Virtualization Summit
Virtualization experts – All in one place
GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2013 included tracks on how leading companies are leveraging GPUs for fully interactive corporate VDI environments and online gaming. As NVIDIA and partners like VMware and Citrix introduced the new NVIDIA GRID™ cloud technologies, GTC brought together leading virtualization experts from around the world. The event provided a unique chance to discover best practices, network with peers, build new business relationships and advance the state of graphics-accelerated virtualization.
What attendees learned:
- What the current key market trends are and how they affect your organization
- Where NVIDIA GRID™ systems are in use today and how they actually work
- How graphics-enabled VDI solutions can be installed today in your organization
- How NVIDIA GRID™ technologies change the way games are delivered to the end customer
INDUSTRY LUMINARIES AT GTC 2013
Derek Thorslund, Director of Product Management, Citrix. Recent technological advances have made it practical to deliver 3D professional graphics applications from the Cloud (private or public) with a high quality user experience and at an attractive cost. Organizations can keep their intellectual property safe in the data center since only fully-rendered screen images are sent over the network. Users in remote locations no longer have to wait for large file transfers.
Brendan Hickey, Director, PLM and Collaboration at Applied Materials, will talk about Applied Materials' journey to take CAD design to their private Cloud, and how now it is possible for CAD users to do their job on notebook computers, improving collaboration, security, user satisfaction, and delivering improved engineering effectiveness.
Gil Rosen, VP New Media at Deutsche Telekom Innovation Labs. In this session, the real strategy of leading market players will be exposed and analyzed providing insight into how the market is likely to develop. Gil is responsible for leading and realizing big ticket innovations for Deutsche Telekom in the New Media domain. Gil's responsibilities span from conceptualizing new services to the development and delivery of next generation platforms and new ventures.
Franck Diard , Chief Software Architect at NVIDIA is going to talk about the technologies behind GRID and how you can integrate them into your cloud products. The audience will learn about the key components, which allow optimal capture, efficient compression, fast streaming and low latency display of high performance games from the cloud. Franck will demonstrate how these components fit together and how to optimize their usage to deliver an ultimate cloud gaming experience.
Didier Contis, Director of Technology Services, Georgia Institute of Technology, Desktop and application virtualization can have a strong impact on the delivery of instruction in a higher-education environment. Just-in-time delivery model, elastic capacity, anywhere/anytime/any delivery model are some of the benefits. Yet, the delivery of CAD/CAM software has remained a challenge due to the lack of virtual GPU. In this session we will share our experience in using some of the current technologies such as RDP 8.0 combined with the NVIDIA GRID K1.
Phil Montgomery, Sr Director of Marketing at VMware. Access your 3D apps anywhere, on any device, with Accelerated Virtual Desktops.
Will Wade, Director GRID Products at NVIDIA. As enterprises look to move PCs to the cloud, users are more and more demanding of a better experience and support for all of their devices. NVIDIA GRID for Enterprise enables IT managers to deliver on an experience equal to a local PC with all the promised benefits of a virtual desktop environment. We'll show how GRID is being enabled in the most common hypervisors, and talk about the technology behind GPUs in virtual environments.
Brian Madden, author of The VDI Delusion. For years, we've been hearing things like, "the future of Windows enterprise computing is VDI!" Well, if that's true, then why is only 2% of the world on VDI right now? Probably because VDI delivers a user experience that is, best case, the equivalent of a ten-year-old PC. Does this mean that VDI is doomed? Hardly! In this energetic session, independent VDI expert Brian Madden will show you the reality of VDI, including why it's failed today and how it will fit into your overall strategy moving forward.
