In a real-life project, I have designed and deployed a VDI platform that was fully utilized for a great User Experience by day. By night, the platform automatically turned into a compute platform to run Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence workloads and fully utilized CPUs, RAM and of course: GPUs. By leveraging the features and technologies in VMware Horizon, VMware vSphere and NVIDIA vGPU we were able to design and build a dynamic platform that is not only able to present the user with a great User Experience, but also offers data scientists a place to run their complex DL/AI (High-Performance Computing) workloads.

In this session, I will explain how the platform was designed, what challenges I faced and how we solved them to get the ultimate VDI/HPC platform. The session will contain multiple demos :)
