The GRID Visual computing appliance
HOW IT WORKS
Eight workstations reside in the GRID Visual Computing Appliance (VCA), which is typically installed in a computer room or data center and connected to the local area network. The user logs into their remote workstation on their local computer. By clicking on the GRID VCA Workspace icon, the user can access graphics-intensive applications powered by workstation-class, NVIDIA graphics. The processing is handled “remotely” in the VCA, so all your important data, files, and IP remain secure.
THE GRID VCA WORKSPACE
Because the GRID Workspace runs inside the GRID VCA, it’s easily accessed by the user, right from their local PC.
Each GRID Workspace includes:
- One NVIDIA® Quadro® K5000 GPU with 4 GB of GPU memory
- 30 GB of system memory
- Eight virtual processor cores
GRID VCA ARCHITECTURE
From the server room, the GRID VCA serves up virtual machines for up to eight concurrent users of graphics-intensive design and engineering applications. Each user has dedicated access to their own workstation-class NVIDIA GPU.
The GRID VCA is linked to network-attached storage where important files, IP, and datasets are securely stored.
A high-resolution stream of the user’s applications is delivered over the network to their PC of choice. The user gets workstation-class performance anywhere they are connected to the local area network.
