I work for a company that develops a system that runs on Linux that does remote rendering for medical applications. I would like to be able to run it on ESXi with vGPU. It is completely unclear to me if I need a software license for this application and if I do what type I need. My application creates one or more OpenGL contexts per user for remote rendering, but it does this in a single VM. It does not use common RDI infrastructure like RDP, it is a proprietary system. My wish is to get as much of the native GPU power through to the VM. Can you advise?
For testing purposes I plan to buy a Tesla T4 and stick it in a test server that we already have running ESXi 6.5. If I need a license for the VM can I buy it directly from NVIDIA or where would I go?
I have browsed https://www.nvidia.com/content/dam/en-zz/Solutions/design-visualization/solutions/resources/documents1/Virtual-GPU-Packaging-and-Licensing-Guide.pdf and NVIDIA® Virtual GPU Software Licensing Frequently Asked Questions. If my answer is in there, I failed to find it.
I really hope you can help me.
