Virtual GPU

Accelerate every workload with virtual GPU technology

While virtualization has been transforming the use of applications and desktops for years, enterprises have only recently been able to take advantage of virtual GPU (vGPU) technology to accelerate virtual workflows. By enabling GPU performance for every virtual machine, virtual GPU technology today powers compute-intensive server workloads for deep learning, AI, data science, and high-performance computing while leveraging the benefits of manageability and security.

For companies sourcing the technology required to take advantage of virtual GPU performance, Thinkmate offers custom-built servers and workstations that combine the flexibility of virtualization with the massively parallel processing power of NVIDIA GPUs.

NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions

NVIDIA virtual GPU technology uses the power of NVIDIA GPUs and virtual GPU software to enable every virtual machine to share a physical GPU installed on the server. Virtual GPU software can also allocate multiple GPUs to a single VM to meet the needs of the most demanding workloads. NVIDIA virtualization software includes a driver for every VM. And because work that was formally done by CPUs is now offloaded to GPUs, virtual GPUs deliver a far richer experience for users while enabling compute-intensive engineering and creative applications to be run in virtualized and cloud environments.

NVIDIA virtual GPU technology includes:

  • NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server. By enabling multiple VM' to share a GPU, NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server makes it possible for data centers to accelerate server virtualization to handle the most compute-intensive workloads for artificial intelligence, data science, and deep learning.
  • NVIDIA Quadro vDWS. This NVIDIA virtualization technology enables users to access Quadro – the world's most preeminent visual computing platform – via a virtual workstation on any device, from any location.
  • NVIDIA GRID vPC. Providing a significantly improved virtual desktop experience, NVIDIA GRID vPC enables knowledge workers to access a seamless desktop experience across all devices, at any time, from any location.
  • NVIDIA GRID vApps. Designed to deliver PC Windows applications at full performance, NVIDIA GRID vApps enables users to access any Windows application on any device, anywhere.

FAQs: What is virtual GPU technology?

What is virtual GPU technology?

Virtual GPU technology is software that delivers graphics-rich virtual desktops and workstations that are accelerated by graphics processing units, or GPUs, which use thousands of computing cores to efficiently process workloads in parallel. Virtual GPU software transforms a physical GPU that's installed on the server to create virtual GPUs that can be shared by multiple virtual machines.

What are the benefits of virtual GPU software?

By virtualizing physical GPUs, virtual GPU software enables a richer experience on virtual desktops. Users can access the applications they need with industry-leading performance on any device, from any location. And IT administrators can manage resources centrally rather than supporting individual workstations at every desktop location.
