NVIDIA Grid 2.0 with Linux support unleashed by the American Chipmaker
NVIDIA Grid 2.0 unleashed by the American Chipmaker, which can be used by the companies to deploy heavy graphics applications remotely to employees.
According to the company, NVIDIA Grid 2.0 provides remarkable performance, efficiency and flexibility enhancements for virtualized graphics in enterprise workflows. With the help of this technology, IT departments can equip employees with immediate access to powerful apps, thus enhancing resource allocation and improving their productivity. Also data can be stored in a more secured way by residing in a central server instead of individual systems.
Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and Co-Founder of NVIDIA said:
“Industry leaders around the world are embracing NVIDIA GRID to provide their employees access to even the most graphics-intensive workflows on any device, right from the data center. NVIDIA GRID technology enables employees to do their best work regardless of the device they use or where they are located. This is the future of enterprise computing.”
The organizations can purchase servers packing NVIDIA Grid boards and use virtualization software such as Horizon 6, VMware vSphere 6 and Citrix’s XenApp to share the power of graphic processing units (GPUs) with Grid 2.0.
What’s new in NVIDIA Grid 2.0?
NVIDIA Grid 2.0 can handle up to 128 users per server, which is twice than before and it also supports the Linux OS along with the Windows OS. Moreover, the technology runs not only on rack servers, but also on blade servers.
“Using the latest version of NVIDIA’s award-winning Maxwell(TM) GPU architecture, NVIDIA GRID 2.0 delivers twice the application performance as before — exceeding the performance of many native clients.”
NVIDIA Grid 2.0 is already being tested out in the field by well- renowned companies, according to the American Chipmaker. It is expected that the company will roll out the service worldwide on September 15.
