NVIDIA vGPU Technology

In a VDI environment powered by NVIDIA virtual GPUs, NVIDIA virtual GPU software is installed at the virtualization layer, along with the hypervisor. This software creates virtual GPUs that let every virtual machine (VM) share the physical GPU installed on the server or allocate multiple NVIDIA GPUs to a single VM to power more demanding workflows. Because work that was typically done by the CPU is offloaded to the GPU, the user has a much better experience, and demanding engineering and creative applications can now be supported in a virtualized environment. The NVIDIA vGPU software for VDI is available in three editions to support different requirements: NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC), NVIDIA Virtual Applications (vApps), and NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS.)

Why are customers deploying GPU-accelerated VDI?

Boost Productivity

Providing a high-quality user experience is critical to ensuring employees can work efficiently. GPU-accelerated VDI with NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC) software significantly improves the user experience, providing up to 3X improved end user latency to enable snappier response times, 2X improved consistency of user experience, and 1.5X more remoted frames. VDI also enables users to remotely access large files without the need for long delays waiting for data to download to their local desktop.

Support any application

Designers, architects, and engineers require access to graphics and compute intensive professional applications which may not run in a traditional VDI environment. GPU-accelerated Lenovo servers with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software provide access to CAD, modelling and 3D design applications with a user experience that is virtually indistinguishable from a physical PC. With NVIDIA RTX technology, professionals can simulate the physical world at unprecedented speeds, leveraging the latest advancements in AI, ray tracing and simulation to enable 3D designs, photorealistic simulations, and stunning visual effects faster than ever before.

Connect with any device

Most enterprises have strict standards when it comes to client devices connecting to the corporate network, so a user typically would not be allowed to use their personal device to access enterprise systems. With VDI, users can use their own laptop, desktop, tablet or other device, without needing to deploy corporate control software, and leaving the user free to run whatever local applications they choose without fear of compromising the enterprise network.

Provide Ease of Management and Greater Security

IT can protect sensitive information by keeping intellectual property centralized in the data center, enabling users to collaborate without the threat of data loss and challenges of managing version control. VDI also enables IT to simplify management of virtual machines centrally from the data center.

Lenovo ThinkSystem 'Servers with NVIDIA vGPU technology

There’s a long-standing partnership between Lenovo and NVIDIA, as seen with current ThinkSystem servers, as well as with previous generations of Lenovo server technology. Through common partnerships with leading vendors such as Citrix, Nutanix, VMware and Microsoft and the addition of NVIDIA vGPU, graphics rich virtual desktops and workstations can be deployed to support users running demanding CAE, CAD, Geospatial (GIS), Medical Imaging, Oil & Gas and many other modern professional applications with ease.

Leading ISV solutions are certified and approved by Lenovo and NVIDIA to ensure full interoperability and exceptional performance for virtual environments and accelerated computing, providing reassurance that solutions can be implemented without challenges or issues of compatibility between the different elements of the virtualized GPU environment.

End-to-end solutions with Lenovo client and server platforms

With Lenovo providing powerful solutions for both the data center and endpoint devices including laptops, workstations and tablet computing solutions, enterprise IT can streamline deployment with Lenovo end-to-end solutions that consolidate procurement, deployment, support, management and maintenance into a single supplier arrangement.

We offer the finest customer experience, proven technology backed by industry experts, improved execution and a world of new opportunities.
