The only solution for Citrix XenDesktop & XenApp that won’t break your budget…
Through NVIDIA GRID vGPUs, enterprises can for the first time seamlessly deliver GPU-accelerated virtual desktops and professional-graphics applications from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere. Businesses are able to realize the benefits of virtualization — security, manageability and flexibility — while delivering the full PC experience that users expect. Dell, HP and IBM are offering NVIDIA GRID-based servers. Citrix, Microsoft and VMware are offering NVIDIA GRID-enabled software.
“IT departments face a growing challenge: employees increasingly bring their own devices to work, and expect mobility and a great experience,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. “Virtualization enables them to provide secure, consistent access to company resources, but at the expense of performance and features. GRID eliminates this compromise.”
At the heart of NVIDIA GRID enterprise solutions are NVIDIA GRID VGX software — a complete stack of GPU virtualization, remoting and management libraries — and NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 boards, which are purpose-built for demanding server environments.
NVIDIA VGX™ software unlocks the virtualization and remoting capabilities of NVIDIA GRID GPUs and is licensed by Citrix for use in XenDesktop®, XenApp® and XenServer®; VMware for use in vSphere® and Horizon View™; and Microsoft for use in RemoteFX.
NVIDIA GRID K1 boards, which include four NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture-based GPUs and 16GB of memory, are designed to host the maximum number of concurrent users. NVIDIA GRID K2 boards, which include two higher end Kepler GPUs and 8GB of memory, are designed to serve the specific needs of users of graphics-intensive applications.
To meet growing customer demand for certified applications, NVIDIA has launched a certification program and testing center where leading OEMs and ISV partners can validate and certify solutions. To accelerate deployment-ready validated designs, NVIDIA and Citrix are working together to establish an NVIDIA and Citrix Ready® verification program offering fast track validation to OEMs and ISVs on NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 cards and Citrix XenDesktop solutions.
Leading Virtualization Companies Support NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2
“Enterprises want to take advantage of the growing trends towards globalization and mobility by virtualizing desktops and applications so users can work from anywhere, anytime on any device — while enabling the company to secure its core IP,” said Bob Schultz, group vice president and general manager, Desktops and Apps at Citrix. “By leveraging NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2, combined with Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenApp with HDX technology, enterprises can deliver the most graphics-intensive applications to users who require rich, interactive experiences from any device.”
