Local Topology (Small Workgroup)

Introduction

NVIDIA Omniverse™ is a revolutionary platform for virtual collaboration and true-to-reality simulation. Globally dispersed teams can accelerate their workflows with one-click interoperability between leading software tools and seamlessly collaborate in a shared virtual world. NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise unites teams, their assets, and software tools in a shared virtual space, enabling diverse workgroups to collaborate on a single project file simultaneously. The platform is optimized and certified to run on NVIDIA RTX™ powered professional workstations, mobile workstations and NVIDIA-Certified Systems™. NVIDIA-Certified Systems™ enables enterprises to confidently deploy hardware solutions that securely and optimally run their modern accelerated workloads.

The Reference Architectures provided by NVIDIA should be used as a starting point and are validated solutions with NVIDIA-Certified Program guidance. NVIDIA-Certified Systems™ represent what is available in a production environment in the market today. There are some components that have options in deployment such as Storage where shared storage is an option vs. running locally in the NVIDIA-Certified System. As long as the interconnect between the shared storage device and the server is robust enough, this should not pose a problem for NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise workflows. Networking options are also varied and there may be limitations based on the deployment within a data center. This Reference Architecture aligns with the NVIDIA-Certified program and includes Mellanox integration.

Workload and Topology Overview

It is critical to ensure that the workloads and workflows are understood and validated as they are a critical factor in determining the best profile and sizing to utilize within the entire environment. The reference architecture in this document outlines a workflow with Creators / Designers, Reviewers, and End Client as users across the various mobile workstations and workstations. Your specific environment will differ so a POC (Proof of Concept) is critical to ensure that the performance is acceptable for your set of users.
