Hi Evgeniy, For optimal performance on 3D accelerated applications (and compute workloads) you will want to leverage our vGPU software and specifically the Quadro Virtual Datacenter Workstation edition. The software consists of a host driver that you install on the hypervisor, a guest driver that you install on the guest VM, and a License Manager that goes onto a License Server VM. Please go to this website and sign up for our 90-day evaluation program and you will receive a trial key: https://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia-enterprise-account.html Also, use this Quick Start guide for the installation process: https://docs.nvidia.com/grid/latest/grid-software-quick-start-guide/index.html Feel free to send me a message with the name and location of your university so I can connect you with your local account team. Thank You Konstantin Cvetanov Sr. Solution Architect, NVIDIA
