Leveling Up: NVIDIA GRID Delivers Improved Support and Greater Stability

by Raj Rao

With today’s latest NVIDIA GRID March 2017 release, we’re enabling IT departments to deliver graphics for all with improved interoperability and user experience.

Enhancements in the March 2017 release include:

  • Modern Support for a Modern Hypervisor – The new Citrix XS 7.1 provides improvements such as PVS-Accelerator and live-patching capabilities and it’s the first XenServer Long Term Service release. The GRID 4.2 software update delivers support for XenServer 7.1 on GRID K1, K2, and Tesla M10, M6 and M60. Note: XenServer 7.1 is the last XenServer release supported on GRID K1 and K2.
  • Increased Session Stability – Continuity is key for any digital workplace whether you’re in CATIA or Chrome. The latest release includes frame buffer residency fixes that reduce session disconnection. Now, during high-memory pressure situations where there is a lack of or high competition for frame buffer, users remain resident-in. More stability means fewer sessions dropped and better user experience for everyone.
  • Operating System Flexibility – Choosing what OS is right for your organization is critical. This update includes continued support for the latest operating systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3, CentOS 7.3 and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This allows IT organizations to choose what OS fits best in their environment.
