Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a method of graphic offloading computing using a GPU virtualization technology in order to provide high demanding software like 3D software as an on-line software service. When the offloading software is executed on server's software virtualization environment, its graphic works are processed on a client's GPU using GPU virtualization, while on the other its data works are processed on server's CPU. To do that, we propose a method of rendering graphics information on client side GPU using API Remoting method. Also, we show the better performance than server based rendering method when we serve offloading software which include dynamical 3D graphics that display images are frequently changed through on-line. Moreover, we describe a method to virtualize offloading software by a process level and manage client's configuration information in order to decrease server's load when we provide software service to multiple clients.
