Overview of Cloud Graphics

By being able to tap into powerful cloud-based servers to perform graphics-intensive operations, organizations can selectively choose the level of performance, latency, and scalability that best fits their business needs. Using new technologies, such as cloud-hosted workstations powered by Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1500 v5 with Iris® Pro graphics, enterprises can equip technical staff members to work collaboratively and access centralized graphics applications remotely from wherever they want to work. With data and applications accessible securely from the data center, complex renderings and visualizations can be handled by high-performance servers in a virtualized environment in which workload processing can be adjusted dynamically to meet requirements. Remote rendering of 3D animations or 3D models represents another promising use of cloud graphics. 

Examples of Cloud Graphics Use Cases

  • Remote desktop applications—Desktop and workstation remoting solutions, powered by the Intel Xeon processor E3-1500 v5 family with Iris Pro graphics, deliver professional graphics capabilities to geographically diverse technical teams, adding to productivity, improving collaboration, and minimizing the risk of lost or stolen intellectual property.
  • Remote rendering—The intensive compute cycles required to process complex animations, scientific data visualizations, ray- traced content creation, and 3D models lends itself well to remote rendering in the cloud where virtualization can be used to dynamically provision compute, storage, and network resources to handle demanding media creations.
