AWS re:Invent 2016: Hardware-Accelerating Graphics Desktop Workloads with Amazon WorkSpaces (BAP210)

Published on Dec 05, 2016

Amazon WorkSpaces is a desktop computing service that runs in the cloud, and now offers GPU configurations to support design and engineering applications and three-dimensional modeling. We show you how running these applications on Amazon WorkSpaces graphics bundles, in close proximity to data you already store on AWS, can help you process and visualize the results you need. We discuss the economics of running Amazon WorkSpaces graphics bundles, and demonstrate the experience of running a graphics-intensive application on a GPU-enabled Amazon WorkSpace. We also invite Autodesk (or TRC or ESRi) to discuss how they are using Amazon WorkSpaces graphics bundles in their business.
