  • Installing NVIDIA vGPU driver for ESXi through vCenter lifecycle manager

    As an NVIDIA Solution Advisor, Kinamo maintains a VMware vSphere cluster for a VMware Horizon VDI deployment of one of our customers. The ESXi hardware hosts are equipped with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to accelerate graphical processing for the clients.
    NVIDIA Virtual GPU (vGPU) enables multiple virtual machines (VMs) to have simultaneous, direct access to a single physical GPU, using the same NVIDIA graphics drivers that are deployed on non-virtualized operating systems.
    Installing NVIDIA vGPU ensures that all of our client virtual desktops have unparalleled graphics performance, computing performance and application compatibility, together with the cost-effectiveness and scalability brought by sharing a GPU among multiple workloads.

    This article covers how to install the NVIDIA vGPU for ESXI through vCenter lifecycle manager, in detail.

  • TEDxFlanders, powered by Kinamo

    A couple of months ago TEDxFlanders reached out to us to see if we could help them to create a new website and assist them with their communication on social media.

    Besides announcing their main event ‘Now’ they are also celebrating a unique milestone with their 10th anniversary.

    We’re proud to share the website that is a result of the collaboration between TEDxFlanders and Kinamo. The focus of the website is to announce upcoming events and be a hub for the TEDxFlanders Ideas worth spreading.
    The graphical elements on the site are all inspired by ‘the heart of the X’ or the beating heart of TEDxFlanders, where people and ideas converge and where the TEDx spark is most tangible.

    About TEDxFlanders

    TEDxFlanders is an independently organised TED event. Founded in 2009 as the first TEDx event in Belgium, we have been sharing “ideas worth spreading” ever since.

    On the 3rd of April TEDxFlanders is organising their main event around the theme NOW.

    “NOW” is a call to understand the present moment in all its complexity.

    For TEDxFlanders the theme “NOW” is especially relevant as it is an opportunity to reflect on the world we are living in today. We look back at the past, our history and where we came from. Then we look forward to the future and reflect on what we want to do. However, it takes courage to be present in the here and “NOW”.

    The “NOW” event will take you on a journey with eight extraordinary speakers and two show-stopping acts from Belgium and around the world. The TEDxFlanders’ speakers are here to inspire you with their stories.

  • GDPR and WHOIS

    Is your inbox also filled with GDPR linked privacy updates? WHOIS, the tool with which you can look up names and contact details of owners of domain names, had to make a couple changes too in order to be inline with the GDPR law.

    As a quick reminder, GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. This regulation has gone in effect May 25th 2018. The main objective is to provide internet users with more information and control in regards to the data they share online.
