PEER 1 Hosting has announced the availability of what it calls the industry’s first large-scale, hosted graphics processing unit (GPU) Cloud at the 37th Annual Siggraph International Conference.
The system runs the RealityServer 3D web application service platform, developed by mental images, a wholly owned subsidiary of NVIDIA.
The RealityServer platform is a combination of NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and 3D Web services software. It delivers interactive and photorealistic applications over the Web using the iray renderer, which PEER 1 says enables animators, product designers, architects and consumers to “easily visualize 3D scenes with remarkable realism.
“Hosting the GPUs and software within the cloud simplifies customer implementation and provides an inexpensive entry point for new users,” the company said in a release.
“It also minimizes internal IT pressures so businesses can focus their talent on core business operations.”
