Citrix Synergy Highlights Role of NVIDIA Virtual GPUs in New Digital Workspace

by Anne Hecht

Delivering the future of work through technology that enables digital transformation was the focus of this year’s Citrix Synergy, one of the industry’s largest virtualization tradeshows.

One of the highlights was NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) solutions, which won a TechTarget “Best of Citrix Synergy 2018” award for the category of Digital Workspace.

An independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from reviewed and evaluated nominated products according to innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

NVIDIA vGPU extends the power of GPU computing to anyone in an organization, delivering a native-like experience on any device, while improving productivity and collaboration.

To meet the challenges of digital workplaces, NVIDIA offers the NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS), the NVIDIA GRID Virtual PC (GRID vPC) and NVIDIA GRID Virtual Apps (GRID vApps). The latest NVIDIA vGPU software release enables live migration of GPU-accelerated virtual machines — demoed at the show with XenMotion — without end user disruption or loss of data.

On the Citrix Synergy show floor, the most powerful virtual workstation on Quadro vDWS and Tesla V100 demonstrated real-time simulation on ANSYS Discovery Live and AI enhanced rendering on SOLIDWORKS Visualize. A Windows 10 VDI environment, with and without a GPU, showed how users of a simple application like PowerPoint can experience improved latency and lower CPU utilization with a GPU and GRID vPC software.
