Modern Apps, Windows 10, and the Virtual GPU – What Every Partner Needs to Know

GPUs continue to advance a proliferation of emerging technologies like Deep Learning, VR, self-driving cars, IoT, and desktop virtualization (VDI).

Across the enterprise, modern applications like MS Office 2016, SaaS browser-based apps, video and unified communications, and Windows 10 demand graphics acceleration in order to deliver the best user experience. VDI sales cycles are long and prone to failure when users aren’t happy or projects are over-spent. NVIDIA GRID and the NVIDIA Tesla M10 data center GPU, combined with Citrix XenDesktop, give IT departments the cost-effective performance and scalability necessary to deliver graphics-accelerated virtual desktops and apps to any user, from knowledge workers, to mobile professionals, to designers.

NVIDIA at Citrix Summit

We’ll be at Citrix Summit demonstrating to our joint partners how they can accelerate revenue growth by tapping into the power of GPUs for every virtual desktop and app.

Join us in NVIDIA Booth #407 to learn how:

  • GPU virtualization is no-longer optional for today’s modern apps and Windows 10
  • NVIDIA GRID dramatically reduces CPU utilization for improved performance and scale
  • NVIDIA GRID value and performance costs as little as $2 per user per month
  • The GPU-Cloud provides partners new value-add services they can offer

Plan to attend our special partner event on Tuesday, January 10th at 4pm for informative presentations, networking, and cocktails. Location: Tangerine Grill and Patio at The Anabella Hotel, 1030 W. Katella Ave. Anaheim, CA 92802. Click here to register.

NVIDIA GRID is fully integrated into Citrix XenDesktop

Citrix XenServer is the first hypervisor to offer virtual GPU support. When paired with the NVIDIA Tesla M10, it supports up to 128 virtual GPUs per server, providing the performance, scalability and manageability required for large-scale enterprise deployments. XenDesktop and XenApp support for NVIDIA NVENC (GPU based display protocol encoding) enables a like-native user experience for business users and workstation users alike. NVIDIA GRID is supported by a full range of Citrix Ready ecosystem partners for server, storage, and management, ensuring that customers current and future investments are protected.

We hope to see you at Citrix Summit, where you can connect with industry experts who are making cost-effective, scalable performance a reality for your customers deploying VDI for today’s modern apps and Windows 10.
