Businesses can enable their XenDesktop environments to finally run visually rich, interactive applications through the industry’s first hardware virtual GPU, with NVIDIA GRID™ vGPU™ technology.
See the difference between a single user per GPU and vGPU that allows multiple users.
For the first time, multiple virtual machines can directly access the graphics processing power of a single GPU. Demand for desktop virtualization has grown as employees increasingly use their own notebooks and portable devices for work. But the user experience until now had been constrained by the subpar performance and limited compatibility of software-emulated graphics. Now, the combination of Citrix XenDesktop and NVIDIA GRID™ vGPU allows businesses to broaden the reach of virtual desktop environments by efficiently sharing GPUs across the complete spectrum of users – from designers and engineers, to power users, to knowledge workers.1
“Citrix XenDesktop is a desktop virtualization solution that transforms desktops and applications into a secure on-demand service available to any user, anywhere, on any device. With XenDesktop, you can deliver individual Windows, web and SaaS applications, or full virtual desktops, to PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones, laptops, and thin clients with a high-definition user experience.“

"With NVIDIA GRID vGPU, even the most intensive graphics applications can be delivered by XenDesktop 7. Now businesses can provide their users with the performance that they expect and need for engineering, design and video applications, while centrally securing and managing valuable intellectual property and sensitive information." Bob Schultz Vice President and General Manager, Desktops and Applications Group at Citrix.
