NVIDIA-Certified Systems for Enterprises

Systems certified by NVIDIA for accelerated computing from leading partners.

Accelerated Applications Are Transforming Enterprise Computing

Enterprises today need a computing infrastructure that provides the performance, reliability, and scalability to deliver cutting-edge products and services, while increasing operational efficiencies. NVIDIA-Certified Systems enable enterprises to confidently deploy hardware solutions that securely and optimally run their modern accelerated workloads—from desktop to data center to edge.


The Benefits of NVIDIA-Certified Systems


NVIDIA-Certified Systems are configured to deliver excellent performance for a diverse range of workloads. Customers can run most accelerated applications on these systems—including GPU-optimized software from the NVIDIA® NGC catalog and commercially available applications—and be confident that they’ll perform well.


NVIDIA-Certified servers are validated for functionality of remote administration features.  Mainstream servers are also tested to ensure full compatibility with enterprise software, such as NVIDIA AI Enterprise, enabling administrators to manage these systems using standard IT management frameworks.


NVIDIA-Certified Systems secure workflows by protecting data at the platform, network, and application layers. Whether deployed in a data center or at the edge, customers can be assured that they don’t have to compromise on security when running accelerated applications.


NVIDIA-Certified servers are tested to validate both multi-GPU and multi-node performance, as well as the performance of multiple workloads running on a single GPU with Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology. They enable IT to scale out accelerated infrastructure to meet future workload demands.

NVIDIA-Certified Servers

NVIDIA-Certified servers create the essential platform for the evolution of enterprise data centers, delivering infrastructure that can handle a diverse range of accelerated workloads. The certification process exercises the performance and functionality of a configured server by running a set of software that represents a wide range of real-world applications in data science, visualization and high-performance computing (HPC). It also covers infrastructure performance acceleration, such as network and storage offload, security features such as Trusted Platform Module (TPM), and remote management capabilities. The certification is organized into categories that are optimized for various workloads, from data center to edge. In the future, the program will expand to include other categories of systems, including DPU servers and servers with Arm® CPUs.

NVIDIA-Certified Systems Frequently Asked Questions

  • What NVIDIA-Certified Systems are available today?

    To see what’s available, please visit the Qualified System Catalog page and filter the list for any of the NVIDIA-Certified System categories. View the NVIDIA-Certified Systems Documentation for additional information.

  • What type of workloads can I run on the certified systems?

    An NVIDIA-Certified System can run a wide variety of accelerated applications. Server and workstations are tested on a range of representative workloads designed to verify best performance of the whole system. Data center servers also undergo infrastructure tests for security, accelerated data transfer and network security offload on both single-node and cluster-based systems. The goal of the tests is to ensure that the systems can deliver the necessary scalability and performance when running real-life workloads of many types. Customers should choose a GPU and network adapter that supports any special requirements of the application.

  • Can I run RTX Virtual Workstation, Virtual PC, or Virtual Apps on NVIDIA-Certified Systems?

    Yes, you can run any version of Virtual GPU (vGPU) software on an NVIDIA-Certified System, as long as this server is also on the list of vGPU-Certified Servers. You must also ensure that the GPUs of the system have the features necessary to support the applications to be run. See the NVIDIA GPUs for Virtualization web page to determine which GPUs are best suited to run your virtualized applications.

  • How are NVIDIA-Certified Edge servers different from NVIDIA-Certified Data Center servers?

    Different categories of NVIDIA-Certified Systems are defined to suit the particular needs of various use cases and workload areas. NVIDIA-Certified Edge servers are configured with GPUs that perform well at inferencing workloads, and are typically server models optimized for edge deployments. Industrial Edge servers also have passed certification while running under more rugged conditions, such as at temperatures outside the normal data center range. Data center servers are equipped with GPUs that have the best performance for workloads such as AI training, rendering, and virtual desktop. These systems are typically server models optimized for data center deployments.

    For more information, see the NVIDIA-Certified Systems data sheet.

  • How are NVIDIA-Certified Systems different from Qualified Servers or NGC-Ready Systems?

    Qualified Servers

    A server that is qualified has undergone thermal, mechanical, power, and signal integrity qualification to ensure that the accelerated hardware is fully functional in that server design. Servers in qualified configurations are supported for production use.

    NGC-Ready Systems

    NGC-Ready servers consist of NVIDIA GPUs installed in qualified enterprise class servers which have passed an extensive suite of single-node tests that validate their ability to deliver high performance running NGC containers. GPUs must be one or more of the following: NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core, T4 Tensor Core, and RTX 6000/8000 ​GPUs. For more details on this designation, please see this page.  

    NOTE: The NGC-Ready Systems program has been replaced by the NVIDIA-Certified Systems program. All new GPUs will be covered only by the NVIDIA-Certified Systems program, although customers can still purchase a wide range of NGC-Ready Systems and still be fully supported.

  • What support services are available for NVIDIA-Certified Systems?

    Hardware support for NVIDIA-Certified Systems is available from the system vendors. NVIDIA offers a range of enterprise software solutions that are optimized to run on NVIDIA-Certified Systems. Each of these have their own support services. For more information, see Enterprise Software Support for NVIDIA-Certified Systems.
