Test-Driving NVIDIA's GRID GPU Cloud Computing - HotHardware

Test-Driving NVIDIA's GRID GPU Cloud Computing - HotHardware | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

......... Nvidia announced that it would offer a free 24-hour test drive of Nvidia Grid to anyone who wanted to see what the technology could do. We took the company up on its offer and what we've seen is damn impressive.

Peter Azzopardi's insight:

NVIDIA's Test Drive is designed to give anyone a chance to see how the program works generally, but GRID is designed for corporate deployments across high-speed networks .......

CloudLight (Nvidia) SIGGRAPH 2013

http://graphics.cs.williams.edu/papers/CloudLight13/Crassin13Cloud.pdf http://graphics.cs.williams.edu/papers/CloudLight13/CloudLightSIGGRAPH13.pptx
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

Nvidia has been working on a system called CloudLight, they are per-rendering some of the region on the server, then each local computer will do a finer detail on each separate system or console.  So global illumination, with photon mapping, could be rendered on the server, then your perspective would be rendered on your console.

 

It's a rather interesting idea. As I think GPU tech will vastly increase in the next few years, this, theoretically could be used to extend the life of a console.  It also shows how even with fairly high latency, 200 ms+ it could still be utilized.

If you were to come up with a list of transformative technologies to hit HPC in the last decade, cloud services and general-purpose GPUs would rank pretty
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

In terms of device speed, which was measured in both raw bandwidth and 3rd party benchmarks, virtualization had “minimal or no significant performance impact.”

12 hard truths about cloud computing

Performance, security, cost -- here’s what to really expect from the cloud
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

The message here is, that although you will save on costs (over the long term) once deciding on the cloud, it is no excuse to start off by penny pinching on the cost of hardware.
