The system runs the RealityServer® 3D web application service platform, developed by mental images, a wholly owned subsidiary of NVIDIA. The RealityServer platform is a powerful combination of NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and 3D web services software. It delivers interactive and photorealistic applications over the web using the iray® renderer, which enables animators, product designers, architects and consumers to easily visualize 3D scenes with remarkable realism.

With the use of massively parallel NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, PEER 1 Hosting can now offer customers flexible and reliable access to a system capable of delivering high computational performance across demanding applications. These include graphics rendering, complex quantitative processing, video compression, and large-model 3D web services for access by mobile clients.

Hosting the GPUs and software within the cloud simplifies customer implementation and provides an inexpensive entry point for new users. It also minimizes internal IT pressures so businesses can focus their talent on core business operations.

“With their commitment to best-in-breed technology and state-of-the-art data centers, PEER 1 Hosting has all the skills to deliver a service of this kind and make the power of the GPU more accessible than ever before,” says Sumit Gupta, product line manager of Tesla products at NVIDIA. “RealityServer running on PEER 1 Hosting’s GPU Cloud will enable software developers of other Web 2.0 websites to offer 3D web applications, making the consumer experience on the Internet even more interactive.”
