Learn Why Virtual GPUs Are the Talk of Citrix Synergy

by Victoria Rege

Graphics acceleration is a hot topic at this year’s Citrix Synergy conference for virtualization, mobility, networking and cloud solutions, May 12-14 in Orlando, Fla.

That’s because customers like Bell Helicopter, City of Waukesha, Drake University and  PSA Peugeot  are sharing stories of improved mobility, scalability and employee productivity due to NVIDIA GRID graphics acceleration for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Virtualization experts like Rachel Berry @rhbBSE, Thomas Poppelgaard @POPPELGAARD and Dane Young @youngtech will highlight VDI with NVIDIA GRID in their talks.

Among them, you can take a “Deep Dive on HDX 3D Pro.” Uncover “The Anatomy of a High-Performance, GPU-enabled Virtual Desktop.” Or learn “How to be Successful with GPU Virtualization 2.0.”

Partners including Cisco, Dell, HP and NetApp will also be talking about GRID.

Taking off: Customers like Bell Helicopter are sharing stories of improved mobility, scalability and employee productivity due to NVIDIA GRID graphics acceleration for VDI.

Stop by Cisco’s booth to learn about the Cisco Unified Computing System with NVIDIA GRID and Tesla.

Visit Dell for a discussion of dedicated GPU, vGPU and reference architecture.

Hear from HP on how to enable the most productive workplace for your users’ accelerated graphics for VDI.

Or learn from NetApp about remote visualization with FlexPod for Citrix and NVIDIA GRID.

Finally, Citrix, Dell and NVIDIA will show – live – how easy it is to set up VDI with NVIDIA GRID with the “#60in60 Challenge.” Four small teams – from one each from Dell and NVIDIA and two groups of Citrix technology professionals led by Dane Young and Thomas Poppelgaard – will  set up 60 Citrix XenDesktop with NVIDIA GRID vGPU virtual desktops.

Each team will get just 60 minutes. Watch them battle it out in the Solutions Expo Hall May 12 at 7pm, May 13 at 1pm and May 14 at 3pm.

Want to setup your own GPU enabled server in 60 minutes or less? Download the vGPU deployment guide to learn how.
