Delivering A GPU Experience To Virtual Desktop

Virtual desktops

Virtual desktops are becoming more common in firms within industries like engineering, medical, entertaining, interior & architecture, where users view and process visual images or video – and need the power of a graphics processing unit (GPU) to accomplish their daily tasks.

Fortunately, modern virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), such as VMware Horizon, support virtual desktops with the graphics card. GPUs can either be dedicated to a specific virtual desktop or shared between multiple desktops, with shared cards being the most popular option.

For designers and engineers, graphics virtualization delivers greater autonomy, allowing the team to move the design process and project team to work closer. CAD and PLM solutions on virtual desktops get a truly responsive experience, just like a physical workstation for users to view & manipulate larger 3D models without lag or delay.

Employees gain mobility through instant access to the applications & data from anywhere through one unified workspace while streamlining and automating desktop and application management.

By allowing multiple virtual machines (VM) to access the power of a single GPU within the virtualization server, enterprises can now maximize the number of users with access to true GPU-based graphics acceleration in their virtual machines.

Together GPU manufacturers like NVIDIA and VMware are revolutionizing VDI solutions by delivering unprecedented rich graphics capabilities for the most demanding professional designers and engineers via access to dedicated or shared virtualized GPUs.
