You are adding support for Windows 10 Enterprise. What about other guest operating systems for OpenGL/OpenCL? We really need this in RedHat/CentOS for Landmark seismic applications. Otherwise we still have to run VMWare for those systems.41 votes
Hyper-V in Windows 10 Anniversary Update and in Windows Server 2016 has the ability to do Discrete Device Assignment, where a device like a GPU can be directly mapped into the address space of a guest VM. This is supported for Windows guests and for Linux guests. For Linux guests, the needed kernel device drivers are in the latest upstream Linux kernel as part of the Hyper-V Linux Integration Services (LIS). These drivers are now flowing downstream into individual Linux distros releases. Ubuntu 16.04 has the drivers, and we’re working with Red Hat to get the drivers into future RHEL updates, which of course will cover CentOS as well. With the GPU mapped into the Linux guest, you can use whatever user space libraries, like OpenGL/OpenCL and others, that are needed by your computational application.
We don’t have any plans to offer RemoteFX for Linux guests.
Support for Debian VMs is worst when compared with Ubuntu, CentOS and others distributions. Would be nice if we had Debian with funcionalities like Dynamic Memory, Virtual Fibre Channel and etc.17 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We’re engaging with the Debian community to get these updates made over the next few months.
