How VMware Delivers Rich, Virtual Graphics with NVIDIA GRID

On Tuesday at VMworld Barcelona, VMware joined the wave of adoption of GRID technology with the introduction of VMware View 5.3 vDGA. Using this software, businesses can give their engineers and designers access to a virtual desktop with no compromises, providing a true workstation-grade option to remote workers.

NVIDIA GRID GPU Pass-Through technology makes this possible by allowing a virtual machine running VMware View 5.3 on top of the VMware ESX hypervisor to talk directly to a dedicated GRID GPU. With a dedicated GPU, applications running virtually benefit from the same compatibility, large graphics memory, interactive performance and rich multimedia experience users expect with a desk-side workstation.
