NVIDIA Introduces GRID Remote GPU Appliance

NVIDIA introduced its first visual computing appliance, which the company says will enable businesses to deliver ultra-fast GPU performance to any Windows, Linux or Mac client on their network. The NVIDIA GRID Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is a GPU-based system that runs complex applications such as those from Adobe Systems Incorporated, Autodesk and Dassault Systems, and sends their graphics output over the network to be displayed on a client computer.

According to NVIDIA, the appliance provides flexibility to small and medium-size businesses with limited IT infrastructures. Employees can create a virtual machine called a workspace. These workspaces (which are, effectively, dedicated, high-performance GPU-based systems) can be added, deleted or reallocated as needed.

“NVIDIA GRID VCA is the first product to provide businesses with convenient, on-demand visual computing,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. “Design firms, film studios and other businesses can now give their creative teams access to graphics-intensive applications with uncompromised performance, flexibility and simplicity.”
