Abstract
Desktop cloud has become a research focus of cloud computing. As 3D rendering, scientific computing and large data fields on the requirements of high performance computing, end user take more and more high request to the cloud desktop. Yet in the desktop cloud, the simulation of virtual graphics can only be used to display 2D graphics, but not to accelerate graphics hardware. This paper mainly discusses KVM/QEMU PCI device passthrough so as to use GPU in the virtual machine, and use the PCoIP Zero Client at the terminal to meet desktop cloud latency and bandwidth requirements. In the case graphics workstation would be greatly enhance the virtual desktop performance, graphics designers can run graphics intensive applications from PCoIP zero Client. The pass-through technique involved in this article is vfio-pci.
