NVIDIA and VMware have been working together for years to improve user experience and enable a whole new class of virtual use cases. With the release of VMware Horizon 7 and the new Blast Extreme protocol, we are once again improving performance and scalability for graphics workloads. Blast Extreme leverages NVIDIA GRID to offload encoding from the CPU and move it to the GPU - it frees up the CPU resources to run additional users per server while simultaneously improving performance. Testing by NVIDIA’s GRID Performance Engineering team using ESRI ArcGIS Pro 1.1 has shown 18% higher user density, along with a 6-13% increase in frame rate, with up to 51ms reduction in latency, and anywhere from 48-89% reduction in TCP bandwidth. Clearly, the combination of Blast Extreme with NVIDIA GRID is delivering better scalability, reduced TCO, and a high-performance user experience.
Your Chance to Participate in a Tech Preview
Explore real-time data-driven insights that impact user experience – powered by VMware and NVIDIA
NVIDIA and VMware are collaborating to extend and enhance vRealize Operations capability with industry-first GPU monitoring and management. NVIDIA is building a vRealize Operations plugin to provide GPU and vGPU level visibility within existing dashboards, to aid in infrastructure analysis, optimization and performance issue remediation.
NVIDIA and VMware are looking for early adopters who are willing to try a special Tech Preview version of this capability, and give feedback. If interested please contact Joanne Clark and Don Bradley for more information.
Drawing on the best of mobile and the cloud, VMware Horizon 7 offers greater simplicity, security, speed, and scale in delivering on-premises virtual desktops and applications while offering cloud-like economics and elasticity of scale.
