VMware and NVIDIA built an elevated strategic partnership to bring an end-to-end platform for AI and to deliver a new architecture for the data center, cloud and edge using SmartNICs to support the needs of next-generation applications. This partnership will unlock the potential of AI and next-generation apps for every business in every industry, from medical researchers looking to accelerate breakthroughs in treatments and immunotherapy, to financial services organizations protecting assets with advanced fraud detection to retailors exploring new insights that enhance customer care to many more.
AI and data driven apps are becoming increasingly mission critical, as nearly every organization looks to tap into analytics and insights from vast amounts of data. With VMware Cloud Foundation and NVIDIA NGC organizations will be able to extend VMware’s proven cloud platform for AI while accessing NVIDIA’s vast portfolio of cloud-native, GPU-optimized containers, models and industry-specific software development kits. The result is an AI-ready platform that runs all enterprise apps – VMs, containers, Kubernetes and AI – and a single set of operations, tools and processes for all apps – significantly expanding the reach of AI while simplifying operations. Even more, organizations can deploy this solution in the datacenter, cloud and edge, to support data gravity requirements, processing the data where it resides, for added speed and efficiency.
As part of VMware’s Project Monterey, VMware Cloud Foundation and NVIDIA BlueField-2 data processing unit (DPU) are helping to create a new architecture for the data center, cloud and edge, purpose built for the needs of next-generation apps. AI, ML, high-throughput and data-centric apps are placing incredible demands on the traditional data center architecture. By offloading hypervisor, networking, security and storage tasks from the CPU to the SmartNIC or DPU, this new architecture promises to deliver breakthrough performance, operations and zero-trust security for next-generation apps across the datacenter, edge and telco clouds.

NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software enables IT teams to help remote employees stay productive, even when they’re working on sophisticated graphics applications or AI and machine learning workloads. Together, NVIDIA and VMware deliver the power and performance to meet every need, from at home or anywhere.
VMware and NVIDIA have partnered to improve virtual desktops and applications, with a consistently great user experience for everyone, from remote office workers to mobile professionals to designers and engineers that need to work from anywhere have partnered to deliver GPU accelerated computing for every workload, from virtual client computing to the most compute-intensive workloads like AI, data science and high performance computing (HPC). Customers can get the user experience and performance that's similar to dedicated hardware delivered with the cost-effectiveness that only GPU virtualization can provide.
With VMware Horizon and NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS), designers and engineers get GPU rendering, simulation and 3D graphics, giving the them flexibility to work from anywhere, on any device. At the same time, VMware Horizon with NVIDIA GRID enables organizations to accelerate digital transformation enabling a native PC like experience for modern business apps and Windows 10. VMware vSphere and NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server, provides high-performance virtual infrastructure solution for AI, deep machine learning, and HPC workloads.
With NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions powering VMware environments, IT organizations can virtualize graphics and compute, dynamically right-size allocation of resources, and optimize infrastructure utilization of their VDI investment. Using your VMware end-to-end platform that integrates with NVIDIA virtual GPU, you can use the tools you are already familiar with like VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) and support for vSphere live migration.
