NVIDIA and VMware combine to offer scalable virtualised graphics capabilities

VDI DiagramsRemote access to rich graphics applications is now possible with VMware Horizon 6 and vSphere 6 and NVIDIA GRID vGPU.

Launched last August, an early access programme has attracted more than 300 customers, including University of Southern California, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, CH2MHILL, and Raytheon. They had access to GRID vGPU technology, which allows data centre GPUs to be shared across multiple users, enabling greater density and scalability.

The feedback has been very encouraging and has proven that NVIDIA GRID vGPU with VMware Horizon 6, built on vSphere, enhances desktop virtualisation with immersive graphics, greater security for mission-critical data, scalable performance and cost-effectiveness.
