With the majority of US companies expecting their workforce to work remotely part time, organizations are turning to the hybrid workspace model to allow seamless transition between the office and home. Global businesses are turning to the flexible workspace model as offices continue to open. NVIDIA virtual GPU products for end user computing transform workflows to liberate your users and data from the confines of traditional PC’s, workstations, and office spaces. Now your teams can seamlessly collaborate in real-time, irrespective of their location, using any device they choose to be productive.
NVIDIA virtual GPU solutions for end user computing extend the power of the NVIDIA GPU to improve virtual desktops and applications, with a consistently great user experience for everyone, from remote office workers to mobile professionals to designers and engineers that need to work from anywhere.
NVIDIA Virtual PC
For teams to be productive, video conferencing tools, like Microsoft Teams have become necessary for real-time collaboration and communication. It is not enough for organizations to provide video conferencing tools, they also must ensure a suitable user experience with optimal video and audio quality. Recently, our NVIDIA labs team compared the performance of video conferencing tools running on CPU-only VDI to the same video conferencing tools running on NVIDIA GPU-accelerated VDI. The NVIDIA GPU accelerated instance included NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC) software and the NVIDIA A16 GPUs. The user experience was poor on the CPU-only VDI due to high CPU utilization when accessing Microsoft Teams conferencing tools. Video breakage and audio delays can lead to miscommunication, loss of information, lower productivity, and overall frustration. NVIDIA GPU-accelerated VDI delivered a consistently better user experience when using video collaboration tools with lower CPU utilization and higher frames per second (FPS).
NVIDIA vPC extends the power of NVIDIA GPU to cost-effectively deliver immersive, virtualized hybrid workspaces that can deliver high performance video conferencing as well as other common, every day work tasks which are increasingly more graphic intensive. Mobile professionals and office workers can enjoy VDI, with a consistently great user experience that’s optimized for office apps and multimedia, with performance as good as many physical PCs. NVIDIA vPC enables IT to virtualize modern apps, with virtual workspaces optimized for every worker, with greater security, improved scalability, and accessibility on any device including smartphones and tablets. Support for multiple displays enables improved work efficiency, while support for up to 5K display resolutions brings the benefits of better display performance to mainstream VDI users.
NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation
Toyota Motor Corporation is using NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) to move to a more flexible workspace that is capable of supporting demanding, technical and creative applications including CAD (computer-aided design). At present, more than 50 percent of Toyota’s CAD users are now using NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstations. Even engineers involved in design work can work from anywhere without being restricted by location, greatly improving work efficiency, accelerating the design and development process, and leading to improvements in work-life balance. “We had a telecommuting system in place, but CAD work could not be done without coming into the office, so designers were unable to use it. With the introduction of RTX vWS, we are no longer restricted to coming into work, and are able to schedule our day more freely.” (Kazutaka Shimizu, assistant manager of Toyota’s ZEV B&D lab)
NVIDIA developed visual computing, with NVIDIA RTX – the world’s most powerful visual computing platform, enabling designers, engineers, scientists and graphics artists to take on the biggest visualization challenges, with immersive, interactive, photorealistic environments. Leveraging NVIDIA data center GPUs, NVIDIA RTX vWS delivers virtual workstations from the data center to any device, anywhere. Architects, engineers and designers are now liberated from their desk and can securely access their applications and data from anywhere and any connected device.
