The rise of emerging technologies represented by deep learning is pushing all industries to acquire data values and reshape business models. This trend creates an unprecedented opportunity for the GPU that is good at parallel computing and floating-point computing. Under the software-defined infrastructure, innovative solutions such as GPU virtualization and graphics workstations have become new drivers for the business transformation of clients.
As a leader in digital solutions, H3C is the only provider of the cloud desktop solution in China that supports SoftVM, GPU Passthrough, and vGPU at the same time on the KVM virtualization platform. This new version of NVIDIA vGPU-based H3C cloud desktop caters to multiple demands of clients with innovative virtual desktop infrastructure, based on a stable, reliable and efficient CAS virtualization platform. It promotes transmission efficiency and reduces delay with efficient H-V data sharing, reduces CPU load with H.264/H.265 hardware compression, reduces network bandwidth occupation with differential image transmission, considers both cost and definition and achieves coexistence with terminal hardware and software decoding, and supports users' different demands for 3D and coding and decoding with flexible vGPU management.
