Virtualized Topology

Introduction

This solution is comprised of GPU, NVIDIA RTX vWS software, design software, Omniverse Collaboration and Rendering Software, remote access software solutions and servers. These validated solutions provide unprecedented rendering and compute performance at a fraction of the cost, space, and power consumption of traditional CPU-based render nodes, as well as high performance virtual workstations enabling designers and artists to arrive at their best work, faster.

Built on the NVIDIA Ampere™ architecture, the NVIDIA® A40, combine 48GB of graphics memory with the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and NVIDIA Ampere architecture CUDA® cores for unprecedented graphics, rendering, and AI performance. Additional support for a range of commercially available remote access software means you can access the power of your RTX desktop workstation from anywhere. Achieve breakthrough innovations with the world’s most powerful graphics solution.

The NVIDIA RTX™ A6000, built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, delivers everything designers, engineers, scientists, and artists need to meet the most graphics and compute-intensive workflows. The RTX A6000 is equipped with the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and CUDA® cores for unprecedented rendering, AI, graphics, and compute performance. Certified with a broad range of professional applications, tested by leading independent software vendors (ISVs) and workstation manufacturers, and backed by a global team of support specialists, NVIDIA RTX is the visual computing solution of choice for demanding enterprise deployments.

NVIDIA A10 / A10G GPUs deliver the performance that designers, engineers, artists, and scientists need to meet today’s challenges. 24 gigabytes (GB) of GDDR6 memory, when combined with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software, can accelerate multiple data center workloads—from graphics-rich virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to AI—in an easily managed, secure, and flexible infrastructure that can scale to accommodate every need.

NVIDIA® OVX™ is a computing system purpose-built for creating and operating NVIDIA Omniverse(TM) applications at data center-scale. This scalable, multi-node computing system combines the most advanced RTX accelerated graphics and AI capabilities with high-speed, secure networking and enterprise-grade management, in leading data center platforms built and sold by NVIDIA Certified partners.

NVIDIA RTX vWS enables delivery of the most powerful virtual workstations from the data center or cloud to any device, anywhere. It lets IT virtualize any application from the data center with a native workstation user experience, eliminates constrained workflows, and flexibly scales GPU resources to run multiple workloads. Virtualization offers the ability to efficiently centralize applications and data at a dramatically lower IT operating expense which allows administrators to focus IT resources on managing strategic projects versus individual workstations – all while enabling a more secure, work-from-anywhere environment with reduced threat of data loss or leakage.

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.

Omniverse Reference Build

These recommendations are meant to be a guide. The most successful customer deployments start with a proof of concept and are “tuned” throughout the lifecycle of the deployment. Beginning with a POC enables customers to understand the expectations and behavior of their users and optimize their deployment for the best user density while maintaining required performance levels. Continued maintenance is important because user behavior can change over the course of a project and as the role of an individual changes in the organization. A design user that was once a light graphics user might become a heavy graphics user when they change teams or are assigned a different project. Management and monitoring tools enable administrators and IT staff to ensure their deployment is optimized for each user.
