VMware Horizon View 5.3 with vDGA
NVIDIA GRID™-accelerated VMware Horizon View 5.3 with vDGA is ideal for 3D graphics-intensive applications like remote workstations. With GRID, everyone can now get the full experience of a local PC while running on a virtual desktop served from the data center.
A wide range of graphics applications—from PowerPoint and videos to intensive 3D CAD and interactive rendering of medical imagery—are now fully interactive with NVIDIA GRID. By leveraging GRID technology with full 3D and compute API support through the latest NVIDIA Quadro® drivers, users can take advantage of the thousands of applications that run OpenGL 4.3, Microsoft DirectX9, 10, 11, or NVIDIA CUDA® 5.0.
NVIDIA GRID with a dedicated GPU for Horizon View
WHAT IS VMWARE HORIZON VIEW?
Horizon View virtual desktops will offer a true workstation replacement option with workstation class 3D graphics using Virtual Dedicated Graphics Acceleration (vDGA) enabled by NVIDIA® GRID™ technology to support high-performance graphics and compute workloads, such as those required by the design, manufacturing, and oil and gas industries. Bandwidth consumption will be lowered through the use of multimedia redirection of H.264 advanced video coding for high-definition content, and efficiency improvements to the Horizon View client for Linux offers users an enhanced experience. Improvements to remote desktops delivered through HTML5 capable web browsers will offer higher quality video playback, faster typing response, and higher scalability, with support for up to 250 concurrent connections. Additionally, support will be available for the latest end-user technologies, including Windows 8.1, Apple iOS 7 and Google Chromebooks.
