GPU Technology Conference Presentation

by Gunnar Berger  |  April 24, 2014  |  4 Comments

A few weeks back I had the honor to keynote the first GPU virtualization summit at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC). While I felt the weight of kicking this thing off on my back, the real weight was trying to start off a summit when there were heavy weights in the room such as Ruben Spruijt, Benny Tritsch, Steve Greenberg, and my arch nemesis Shawn Bass. In all seriousness, this room was a collection of some of the smartest people in the industry and I was honored to be among them.

In my presentation I shared where GPU virtualization stands in the industry today, how Citrix, Microsoft and VMware compete, and to top if all off, I gave a lot of video evidence so the audience could see the technologies for themselves. Typically when I present at a conference the content is only shared with those that went to the conference, however this conference opened up the video for the public to see so I figured I’d share this on my blog for your viewing pleasure. As a side note, one thing I find funny in listening to myself is that the room had so many experts in it if I doubted myself I just looked to the person in the audience, asked my question, and got my answer on the spot. It was a very different experience than my traditional presentation, I hope you enjoy.

PS the first 30-seconds has poor sound but they fix it.
