Hyper-Converged Industry Leaders HPE and Nutanix Support Graphics Acceleration with NVIDIA GRID

by Tony Paikeday

Hyper-converged infrastructure solutions are driving growth in VDI implementations, delivering new economics, manageability and, now, better performance through graphics virtualization.

Industry leaders like HPE and Nutanix have recently chosen NVIDIA GRID and the NVIDIA Tesla M10 to enable GPU graphics acceleration for their converged infrastructure solutions.

According to Gartner, the hyper-converged infrastructure market is expected to see mainstream adoption and grow by 79% over the next 5 years. Enterprise IT teams leverage hyper-converged infrastructure with virtual GPUs to provide virtual workspaces and desktops to every user from knowledge workers and mobile professionals to engineers and designers. As the industry’s only enterprise-grade solution for graphics virtualization that scales cost-effectively, NVIDIA GRID with the Tesla M10 is helping to drive this growth by delivering the best user experience.

“For any VDI environment to meet the demands of today’s modern applications and business applications like Windows 10, graphics virtualization is no longer an option but a must-have,” said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Business Development, Nutanix. “Using NVIDIA GRID with the Tesla M10 in the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, we’re able to deliver a better user experience and allow IT to cost-effectively scale their VDI implementations to meet the needs of every user.”

With the Dell EMC Hyper-Converged Appliance, HPE Hyper Converged 380 or Nutanix NX-3175-G4/G5, IT can reap the benefits of GPU-powered, hyper-converged infrastructure solutions with NVIDIA GRID and the Tesla M10 for cost-effective performance and scalability for every user, application, desktop and workspace.
