NVIDIA TESLA M6/M60 GPU

GRID-enabled NVIDIA Tesla GPUs in certified server platforms run the GRID software. Tesla M60 is the PCIe based board for rack servers. Tesla M6 is the new MXM module for blade servers.

NVIDIA GRID SW

NVIDIA GRID software is available in three editions that deliver accelerated virtual desktops to support the needs of your users. These editions include Virtual PC, Virtual Workstation, and Virtual Workstation Extended. GRID, perpetual licenses are sold by Concurrent User (CCU).

SUMS

The newly available NVIDIA GRID Support, Updates, and Maintenance Subscriptions (SUMS) provide enterprise class technical support from the experts, along with software updates, maintenance, and upgrades to keep your GRID solution optimized and up to date.

2X USER DENSITY
Powered by the world’s most powerful data center GPUs, NVIDIA GRID technology allows you to share graphics resources with up to 16 users per GPU. This is double the density of previous generations.

2X PERFORMANCE
Bring the power of virtualization to the users who need it to be their most productive. NVIDIA GRID technology ensures complete application compatibility, meaning any application that can run in a physical desktop can run in a virtual desktop. Organizations can now expand their virtualization footprint without compromise.

2X PLATFORMS
NVIDIA GRID solutions are available in blade servers, as well as rack servers. Supported by the largest hardware vendors in the world, NVIDIA GRID can now be run in any data center environment.

2X OS
The latest generation brings support for Linux workloads into accelerated virtual desktops, significantly expanding use cases for NVIDIA GRID technology. The solution now supports both of the most popular operating systems in the world, ensuring compatibility for all workloads.

ELEVATOR PITCH

NVIDIA GRID brings accelerated graphics to virtual environments, letting you virtualize any application with optimal experience. With the industry’s most advanced technology for virtualizing GPU hardware, NVIDIA GRID technology lets multiple users access the power of a single GPU without compromising the graphics experience. NVIDIA GRID allows IT to deliver virtual desktops across their user base for great productivity and mobility while ensuring better scalability and manageability of their IT environment. Designers can confidently work on the applications they count on—such as Siemens NX, Solidworks, and AutoCAD—delivered by native NVIDIA graphics drivers, in real-time for better productivity and enhanced security.
