GRID vApps

Give users a graphics-rich experience with NVIDIA GRID vApps

Knowledge workers using modern, graphics-intensive applications and operating systems need virtualization solutions that can deliver a native PC-like experience. Access to graphically rich applications on multiple devices and monitors is essential for boosting productivity and delivering superior performance. NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps offer virtual GPU software that can deliver a user experience that's nearly indistinguishable from a native PC. With server-side graphics and comprehensive management and monitoring capabilities, NVIDIA GRID technology delivers the power of GPU acceleration to every virtual machine in the organization.

As a leading provider of custom-configured server, storage and workstation solutions, Thinkmate offers a broad array of GPU-accelerated servers built with NVIDIA GPUs and powered by NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps software. With exceptionally competitive pricing, superior customer service, and deep technical knowledge, we enable our customers to take full advantage of the power of desktop virtualization.

The benefits of NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps

NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps provide a dynamic, multimedia-rich experience that improves virtual desktops and applications for every user. NVIDIA virtualization software enables GPU sharing, dividing GPU resources across multiple virtual machines to deliver enhanced performance.

With GRID vPC and GRID vApps in the data center, organizations can:

  • Increase productivity through desktop virtualization. Knowledge workers today rely on multiple devices and multiple 4K resolution monitors to stay productive, and they expect a seamless experience across devices with access to the graphics-rich applications they need on any device at any time. NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps software make this accessibility possible, allowing workers, designers and engineers to achieve up to a 42% increase in productivity through the use of multiple displays.
  • Improve the performance of the virtualized desktop experience. NVIDIA GRID vApps boosts the performance of applications that use graphics acceleration by moving processing responsibility away from server CPUs – the traditional method of virtualizing applications – to GPUs, removing performance bottlenecks and delivering a virtual desktop experience that's as good as a physical device.
  • Enhance user satisfaction while improving user density. NVIDIA virtual GPU technology delivers an incomparably better user experience with up to 3X improved end-user latency and up to 1.5X more remoted frames. NVIDIA also enables more users to access GPU-accelerated performance by supporting up to 32 concurrent users on a single GPU card.

In addition to NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps software, NVIDIA virtualization solutions include NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server for virtualizing server workloads, and NVIDIA Quadro vDWS for providing a full Quadro experience on any device in any location through virtualization.
