Speaker - Matthew Baltera, Gensler; Jason Dacanay, Gensler Description - By harnessing the power of NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS), Citrix XenDesktop and Enlightened Data Transport protocol, Gensler enabled global collaboration across 50 offices worldwide. Designers are very creative and collaborative individuals and their workflow demands the most powerful CPU and GPU compute available. Trying to compensate for high latency networks with wide area file caching is no longer the answer. Consolidation and centralized data combined with NVIDIA vGPU enabled VDI infrastructure is what we believe is the solution. We have built a globally accessible virtual office that our designers confidently use to create more complex projects for our clients.
