Nvidia Tesla M10 License with Physical windows server

I’m actually asking for the required license (Grid) for Nvidia Tesla M10 installed on physical Dell Server with windows server 2019 standard. there is no virtualization, just physical server.
So, what is the required Grid License?

You need vApps licensing. Please check our licensing and packaging guide. It doesn’t matter if you use baremetal, PT or vGPU, as long as you need the WDDM support for Windows on datacenter GPUs, you need to use the vGPU drivers.

Hi Sschaber,
thanks a lot for your reply. I got the application that would be used with this card which is “La Semaforica S.r.l. and TECSEN deal with traffic regulation and the development of ITS systems for Smart Mobility applications”
So, kindly advice with the required NVidia License and Windows server edition standard or data center?
Also, what if there is no virtualization. the end user will use the card directly from the server. is the license differ from paremetal or virtualization?

vApps license should be sufficient. Windows Server Standard or DC is independent from our driver. You can choose what you prefer.

Dear Sschaber,
I founded the following" In a bare-metal deployment, you can use NVIDIA vGPU software graphics drivers with Quadro vDWS and GRID Virtual Applications licenses to deliver remote virtual desktops and applications. If you intend to use Tesla boards without a hypervisor for this purpose, use NVIDIA vGPU software graphics drivers, not other NVIDIA drivers."

As per this document, If no hypervisor, there is no need for any vGPU license? or must be license even no hypervisor?

I don’t get your point. You highlight a sentence that exactly describes that you need the vGPU software. And vGPU software means vGPU licensing in order to do so.
So please believe me that you need the vApps licensing for your use case!

Dear Sschaber,
thanks a lot for your reply. I think I got the your message which is" we must have vGPU License + GPU Driver either paremetal and virtual environment".
if the application is 3D rendering or 3D visualization, I think the Quadro vWS license is the optimum.
