GRID vPC

Deliver a better user experience with NVIDIA GRID vPC

Desktop virtualization has been transforming the way users access applications for a number of years, but the user experience has often lagged behind what users can do on physical PCs. NVIDIA GRID virtual PC (GRID vPC) and GRID virtual apps (GRID vApps) are changing this dynamic, providing a user experience that's nearly indistinguishable from a native PC. With server-side graphics and comprehensive management and monitoring capabilities, GRID vPC delivers the power of GPU acceleration to every virtual machine, creating an exceptionally dynamic, multimedia-rich user experience.

For organizations seeking virtual GPU technology to improve user experiences, run compute-intensive server loads and leverage the benefits of improved manageability and security, Thinkmate provides custom-built servers and workstations with NVIDIA GPU accelerators and virtualization software.

Improve virtual desktops and applications for every user

NVIDIA GRID vPC and GRID vApps offer proven performance built on NVIDIA's GPUs, dividing and sharing GPU resources across multiple virtual machines running any application. With this NVIDIA virtualization technology, enterprises can:

  • Offer a virtual desktop experience that is as rich as a physical device. Enterprise users today work with a growing number of applications that rely on graphics acceleration and superior performance. Traditional desktop PCs increase application performance through the use of embedded or integrated GPUs. Traditionally, however, computer graphics in virtualization technology have been handled by a server CPU, causing performance bottlenecks, limiting scale and degrading the user experience. With GRID vPC and vApps, these virtualized applications are powered by NVIDIA GPUs to deliver a superior graphics-rich experience.
  • Enable users to access their apps on any device, anytime. Knowledge workers today use multiple devices, and they need access to essential applications on all of them, at any time. Users also expect consistent performance across multiple 4K resolution monitors to stay productive. GRID vPC enables these workers to enjoy a seamless experience and easy access across all their devices, and to realize up to a 42% increase in productivity through the use of multiple displays.
  • Improve user-density while increasing user satisfaction. NVIDIA GRID vPC delivers GPU acceleration to every virtualized user, supporting up to 32 concurrent users on a single GPU card. At the same time, GRID vPC delivers a user experience with up to 3X improved end-user latency and up to 1.5X more remoted frames.

In addition to GRID vPC and GRID vApps, NVIDIA offers NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server for virtualizing server workloads and NVIDIA Quadro vDWS for providing creative and technical professionals with a virtual Quadro experience anywhere, on any device.
