VMware: Configuring a Headless CentOS Virtual Machine for NVIDIA GRID vGPU
When IT administrators think of GPUs, the first thing that comes to mind for many is gaming. But GPUs also have business applications. They’re mainly found in high-end workstations to support graphics intensive applications like 3D CAD and medical imaging.
But GPUs will have other uses in the enterprise. Many of the emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence and deep learning, utilize GPUs to perform compute operations. These will start finding their way into the data center, either as part of line-of-business applications or as part of IT operations tools. This could also allow the business to utilize GRID environments after hours for other forms of data processing.
This guide will show you how to build headless virtual machines that can take advantage of NVIDIA GRID vGPU for GPU compute and CUDA. In order to do this, you will need to have a Pascal Series NVIDIA Tesla card such as the P4, P40, or P100 and the GRID 5.0 drivers. The GRID components will also need to be configured in your hypervisor, and you will need to have the GRID drivers for Linux.
