Powering Hybrid Workspaces with NVIDIA Virtual GPU and Citrix

NVIDIA awakened the world to computer graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. From its roots in visual computing, NVIDIA has revolutionized and expanded itself into an end-to-end computing platform.

Today’s applications and operating systems are increasingly dependent on graphics processing capabilities to deliver seamless end user experiences. To establish a productive digital workspace that allows users to access data and applications between the office and home in the post pandemic era, organizations are turning to end user computing solutions to build hybrid work environments.

NVIDIA and Citrix are working together to bring the performance of NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) technology to Citrix Virtual Apps and Virtual Desktops. NVIDIA vGPU enables powerful GPUs from the enterprise data center, public cloud, and private clouds to power virtual workstations, desktops and apps, with an immersive user experience for everyone, from designers to mobile professionals to office workers. IT can virtualize 100% its users with a native PC-equivalent experience, achieving dramatically lower cost per desktop. End users can stay productive and enjoy a high-quality, premium experience that rivals physical PC’s.

NVIDIA + Citrix - Raising the Bar on Productivity and User Experience

Meeting the Increasing Graphics Demands - Modern digital workplaces continue to involve graphic-rich applications and workloads. GPU-powered VDI accelerates office productivity applications, WebGL, and streaming video and supports high-resolution and multiple monitors for knowledge workers.

GPU acceleration for 3D applications - With NVIDIA vGPUs, IT can provide high performance virtual workstations that power 3D professional graphics applications by enabling Citrix HDX 3D Pro on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops.

Remote Collaboration - Remote office conferencing tools, browsers, rich multimedia content and even the Windows 10 desktop environment, demand levels of graphics performance and user experience traditionally not supported by CPU-only VDI and application virtualization. NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions accelerate productivity applications and enable geographically dispersed teams to collaborate in real time without borders or limits.

Rapid Provisioning to Eliminate Constrained Workflows - Rapidly provision GPU-powered virtual workstations and desktops in a fraction of the time with indistinguishable performance from a bare metal environment, increasing user productivity and business agility.

Hybrid Cloud Flexibility - As multi-cloud becomes part of the hybrid work IT infrastructure solutions, organizations can access accelerated Citrix Virtual Desktops and Apps with NVIDIA GPU-powered cloud solutions, available through major public cloud service providers, along with on-premise VDI deployment to ensure operational consistency and scalability.

Management and Monitoring - IT can use the same familiar management tools from hypervisor and monitoring software vendors for deep insights into GPU usage.
