Nvidia today revealed that its Quadro Virtual Device Workstation( vWS) is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The guarantee of the Quadro vWS is to permit services to run high-end graphics applications in the cloud, utilizing any of Nvidia’s high-end and mid-level cloud GPUs like the P100, V100, P4 or P40 For the Azure cloud, this particularly suggests that the Quadro vWS can utilize Nvidia’s Tesla GPUs with 24 GB of frame buffer per GPU.
” We’re concentrated on delivering the very best and broadest series of GPU-accelerated capabilities in the public cloud,” said Talal Alqinaw, senior director of Microsoft Azure, in today’s statement. “ NVIDIA Quadro vWS broadens consumer choice of GPU offerings on Azure to bring effective expert workstations in the cloud to meet the requirements of the most requiring applications from any gadget, anywhere.”
The pledge of a virtual workstation, of course, is that you can easily spin them up and down as needed and only pay for when they are running. And all the underlying infrastructures are handled by someone else, as are software and chauffeur updates, in addition to all the monetary estimations that enter into effect when you are renting workstations in the cloud.
Nvidia argues that these workstations must be especially of interest to users in markets like architecture, home entertainment, oil and gas and production.
It’s worth keeping in mind that Microsoft’s own Windows Virtual Desktop on Azure also supports the Quadro vWS on Tesla GPUs. Undoubtedly, virtual desktops and enabling GPUs for them appears to have actually been an area of focus for the Azure group in recent months
