Airbus, CH2M HILL, MetroHealth Among First to Try NVIDIA GRID vGPU with VMware Horizon

by Andrew Cresci

Airbus Group. CH2M HILL. MetroHealth. These are big companies in diverse industries. The common denominator: they’re all trying out the latest technology for GPU virtualization.

At VMworld San-Francisco, in late August, we showed off our collaboration with VMware with a technology preview of GRID vGPU running on VMware products.

We also launched our joint early access program and invited VMware Horizon customers to sign up. Our promise:  experience rich 3D applications that harnessed the power of NVIDIA GRID vGPU with VMware products.


It’s yet another example of why our GRID technology is changing how VDI is deployed. GRID delivers on the promise of instant access to powerful applications – and collaboration – on the go. And because GPUs power GRID, it delivers the visual computing muscle too often missing in the past.

The big idea is to let many virtual machines to share the power of a single GPU to deliver rich 3D graphics and high performance video. With no compromises in performance.

This week at VMworld Europe in Barcelona, we announced that Airbus, the European plane-manufacturing giant; CH2M HILL, a global construction and engineering firm; and MetroHealth, a major healthcare provider are among the first to try this technology.

Read what they are saying about how VMware Horizon with NVIDIA GRID is delivering high-end 3D applications.

If you need to deliver high-end 3D graphics with secure remote desktops, try out NVIDIA GRID vGPU with VMware Horizon. View the requirements, here, and apply for early access today.
