Can GPUs be used in vSphere for applications other than VDI? Just ask your company’s data scientists, machine learning practitioners or developers if they want to compute their operations faster. In the consumer market, a GPU is mostly used to accelerate gaming graphics. Today, GPGPU’s (General Purpose GPU) are the choice of hardware to accelerate computational workloads in modern High Performance Computing (HPC) landscapes. This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Niels Hagoort and Johan van Amersfoort to explore GPU Compute for vSphere applications.
