NVIDIA is holding the first European edition of its successful GPU Technology Conference next week in Amsterdam. Cisco is excited to participate as a Platinum sponsor. We will have subject-matter experts on hand to talk to you about deep-learning, machine learning, virtualized graphics workstations and the infrastructure needed to support these.
We’re excited about introducing our new hyperconverged infrastructure solution, Cisco HyperFlex Systems. Cisco HyperFlex is the first end to end HCI solution that combines compute, networking and next generation storage. Cisco HyperFlex is unlike other hyperconverged solution as it can scale compute and storage capacity independently. With support for the NVIDIA Tesla M60 card in the HyperFlex HX240c node and the M6 in the UCS B200 M4 blades, HyperFlex provides a simple, yet scalable foundation for virtualized graphics workstation deployment.
Delivering graphics workstations from the cloud
We will also host our partner ebb3 in our stand. They will be demonstrating their innovation in virtualization for 3D software applications, High Performance Virtual Computing (HPVC).
The HPVC enables the power of a high specification graphics workstation to be accessed on-demand, anywhere from any type of device, for an unlimited number of users. While demonstrating the HPVC in the Cisco stand, it will actually be running 474 miles (as the crow flies) away on Cisco UCS infrastructure, while enabling impeccable application delivery to Amsterdam.
You can also catch ebb3’s session, “Any Device, Anytime, Anywhere: Graphics Virtualisation for the Modern World” on Thu 29 September at 10:00 in the Up building.
During Cisco’s sponsored session, we will give voice to our customer, Harry Tobler, CIO of Geoterra a large civil engineering company in Switzerland. Harry will share his experience on implementing VDI with NVIDIA GRID on Cisco UCS servers. He’ll discuss the unique requirements for replacing high-end graphics workstations with virtualized desktops and how user experience is key for a successful implementation. Catch his session, “Virtualized 3D Workstations Accelerate Business for Civil Engineering Company: A Customer Perspective” on Thursday, September 29 at 15:00 in the Up building, Floor 18.
So stop by the Cisco stand and chat with us about all you can do by adding GPUs to your Cisco infrastructure. I am looking forward to meeting you face-to-face. Personally, it will be my first time in Amsterdam. So tell me what’s the best thing I should do in the very limited time I will have outside the conference. You can find me on twitter @FrancoiseBRees
