GPU ACCELERATED PERFORMANCE FOR TODAY’S VIRTUAL WORKSPACES
NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) is the industry's most advanced technology for sharing the power of NVIDIA GPUs across virtual machines (VMs) and virtual applications. Amp up the power of your VDI environment and deliver a superior experience to every remote user, for every application and on any device. NVIDIA virtual GPU software products include the GRID Virtual PC (GRID vPC), GRID Virtual Apps (GRID vApps), and Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS). Each is designed to deliver the highest levels of performance, flexibility, manageability, and security—offering the right user experience for every virtual workflow.
HOW IT WORKS
In a VDI environment powered by NVIDIA virtual GPU, the NVIDIA virtual GPU software is installed at the virtualization layer along with the hypervisor. The NVIDIA virtual GPU software creates virtual GPUs enabling every virtual machine (VM) to share the physical GPU installed on the server. The NVIDIA virtualization software includes a graphics driver for every VM. Quadro vDWS includes for example, the powerful Quadro driver. Because work that was typically done by the CPU is offloaded to the GPU, the user has a much better experience, and demanding engineering and creative applications can now be supported in a virtualized and cloud environment.
