Executives from Oculus and Hexagon Geospatial will explore how virtualization transforms graphics-intensive businesses.
Leaders from Oculus, Hexagon Geospatial, Dell, and Nvidia will be among the experts speaking at Virtualize 2015, the one-day conference devoted to workstation virtualization for graphics-intensive businesses. The conference, produced by Jon Peddie Research, will be October 29, 2015 at the Hyatt Burlingame, SFO.
Discussions at this year’s conference will include how virtualization in entertainment and gaming is influencing the way virtualization is being rolled out in businesses. “Virtualization represents one of the most transformational and least understood technologies to come along in a decade of computing revolution,” says Dr. Jon Peddie. “One of the trends we’re seeing is small companies using virtualization to compete with large companies.”
Inventor Jack McCauley, vice president of engineering at Oculus VR. McCauley will join game industry leaders who will talk about how virtualized resources are enabling new forms of communication and game play, and shared experiences.
Brad Skelton, CTO at Hexagon Geospatial will talk about how his company is providing secure access to GIS and point cloud data.
Gary Radburne, head of workstation virtualization at Dell, and Phil Eisler general manager for Nvidia’s GRID cloud computing will talk about the new usage models they’re seeing.
Industry analysts scheduled to speak or moderate panels include Nathan Brockwood of Insight 64, Kevin Krewell of Tirias Research, Ben Bajarin of Creative Strategies, and Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research.
This year the conference will have a panel to discuss performance in virtualization. The SPEC Organization has been working on standards for benchmarking virtualized semiconductors. The GPU makers have their own thoughts on the subject as well.
