The Power of Virtualization Multiplied with Enhanced vGPU Solutions

From: Red Hat Virtualization: Supporting multiple NVIDIA virtual GPU workflows in virtualized environment

In addition to Red Hat’s contributions to upstream projects focused on Linux kernel and Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM), we have been working with NVIDIA and others in the upstream Linux community to enable support for mediated device framework (mdev). The framework manages device drivers calls enabling applications to take advantage of the underlying hardware. NVIDIA GPUs is one of the device types that mdev targets and support for this functionality is slated for inclusion in Red Hat Virtualization 4.2, a KVM-powered virtualization platform, in the coming weeks.
