GPU Virtualization for Every Workload – from AI to VDI

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 vComputeServer, provides high-performance virtual infrastructure solution for AI, deep machine learning, and HPC workloads.

Single Platform, Full Digital Transformation Capability

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.
