NVIDIA Rolls out Grid 2.0, Improves Virtualized Graphics in Enterprise Workflows
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: NVIDIA, the chipmaker company, has launched the new version of its desktop virtualization technology, called Grid 2.0, which enterprises can use to deploy graphics-heavy applications remotely to employees who are offsite.
With the massive support from the IT industry, like Cisco, Dell and HP, it delivers the most graphics-intensive applications to any connected device virtually. Also, it offers unprecedented performance, efficiency and flexibility improvements for virtualized graphics in enterprise workflows. It enables employees to work from almost anywhere without delays in downloading files, while increasing their productivity; and allows IT departments to equip workers with instant access to powerful applications, improving resource allocation. With this new version, data can be stored more securely by residing in a central server rather than individual systems.
Moreover, by integrating the GPU into the data center, NVIDIA 2.0 clears away several barriers and provides doubled user density, which enables organizations to scale more cost effectively, expanding service to more employees at a lower cost per user; doubled application performance, blade server support, which help enterprises to run GRID- enabled virtual desktops on blade servers; and Linux support, where businesses using Linux applications can take advantage of graphics-accelerated virtualization.
“Industry leaders around the world are embracing NVIDIA GRID to provide their employees access to even the most graphics-intensive workflows on any device, right from the data center. NVIDIA GRID technology enables employees to do their best work regardless of the device they use or where they are located. This is the future of enterprise computing,” says Jen-Hsun Huang, Co-founder and CEO of NVIDIA.
