Nvidia unveils Industry’s First Visual Computing Appliance
Nvidia today introduced the industry’s first visual computing appliance — enabling businesses to deliver ultra-fast GPU performance to any Windows, Linux or Mac client on their network. The Nvidia Grid Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is a powerful GPU-based system that runs complex applications such as those from Adobe Systems Incorporated, Autodesk and Dassault Systèmes, and sends their graphics output over the network to be displayed on a client computer. This remote GPU acceleration gives users the same rich graphics experience they would get from an expensive, dedicated PC under their desk.
Nvidia Grid VCA is an easy-to-install, easy-to-manage 4U appliance. Its 16 Nvidia GPUs and Nvidia GridVGX software provide Nvidia Quadro –class graphics performance for up to 16 concurrent users, with low latency, high resolution and maximum interactivity for unparalleled quality of service. Available in the United States in May, Nvidia Grid VCA is offered in 8 GPU or 16 GPU configurations, with pricing starting at $24,900, plus an annual software license of $2,400.
