Deployment Server Overview¶
This deployment guide is an effort to drive a deployment that is validated through a multi-vendor cooperation between NVIDIA and its system and ISV partners. Omniverse is a collaboration solution that utilizes NVIDIA validated hardware within the NVIDIA EGX™ server program along with partnerships with key ecosystem software partners to provide a collaboration space across application environments.
When designing assets, collaboration, and communication of design intent rank high among the many challenges project teams face. These become even more difficult when team members are remotely located and geographically dispersed. The need to translate and composite data from different software tools, datasets, and other project contributors complicates matters and slows down the design process. Today, there is a growing demand for more efficient team collaboration during design, faster iteration on high-fidelity renders, and the expectation of accurate simulation and photorealism. NVIDIA Omniverse delivers unique capabilities to address each of these needs.
Omniverse aims for universal interoperability across different applications and vendors across the 3D ecosystem. It provides efficient real-time scene updates and is based on open standards and protocols. The Omniverse platform is designed to act as a hub, enabling newly connected capabilities to be exposed to any connected clients and client applications.
Flexibility and Scale¶
The Omniverse stack is designed for maximum flexibility and scalability. Developers access the Omniverse platform is five components and Kit Extensions to build their own apps or modify and create their own Kit Extensions. Design professionals in diverse industries use the ready-made Omniverse Apps, with many more being built by third parties on the Omniverse platform.
Omniverse consists of 5 key components: Omniverse Connect, Nucleus, Kit (and applications built with Kit), Simulation and RTX Renderer. These components along with connected third party digital content creation (DCC) tools and additional connected Omniverse microservices make up the full Omniverse system.
