NVIDIA vGPU 3D Overview

This article shows you how to give a quick demo of NVIDIA vGPU from the EUC Global Demo Environment. You'll see how you can showcase this feature connecting via PCoIP through the Horizon Client or via BLAST on a Chromebook and show off the Horizon user experience.

Virtual Desktop Performance Use Cases

These use cases can be shown in either PCoIP or HTML5 connection modes.

From the virtual desktop open up the default web browser and go to websites like http://www.gopro.com, http://www.youtube.com, http://www.vimeo.com,

and allow the video to start playing.

All the desktops in the EUC Global Demo environment are accelerated with VMware vGPU.

In order to demonstrate this capability, there are some applications installed in the base image to assist.

The first application is called 123 Design by AutoDesk. Load the designs in the 123 Design folder on your desktop and interact with it by changing the orientation, zoom in/out etc.

Launch the Google Earth application from the shortcut on your desktop in the virtual machine. Once loaded enter an appropriate location and hit enter, allowing the app to zoom and show the rendering in the remote session. Once complete close the Google Earth application.

Open Chrome and goto the following URL http://www.playmapscube.com and play the game there, then open a new tab and go to the following URL http://www.cartelle.nl/toys/toaster and play with the 3D toaster, then open a new tab and go to the following URL http://lab.aerotwist.com/webgl/undulating-monkey and interact with the scene, then open a new tab and go to the following URL http://aleksandarrodic.com/p/jellyfish and move the jellyfishes around, then open a new tab and go to the following URL http://helloracer.com/webgl.

You can google "WebGL experiments" and find many many more demos of this type.
