I’m currently using Nvidia Video Codec SDK (nvenc) for my application with both:
- bare metal servers with GPU
- vmware VMs with GPU passthrough
My customers have bought some Telsa M60 in their VMware infrastructure and want to move from the passthrough solution to GRID vGPU and they are asking me if my application is compatible with vGPU.
So I’m asking you: is the Nvidia Video Codec SDK and especially nvenc is accessible from within a VM with vGPU?
Is there any difference in performances?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
