ViewSonic and NaviSite to Showcase NVIDIA GRID at VMworld 2014
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, announces
that it has joined up with NaviSite (News - Alert) and NVIDIA to showcase the ultimate
VDI client at VMworld, August 24-28, in San Francisco, CA, in booth
#2146. ViewSonic's new CDE8451-TL 84-inch, 4K, touch-screen display, in
combination with NaviSite's new Desktop as a Service (DaaS) that
features NVIDIA (News - Alert) GRID™ technology, is ideal for use in collaborative and
highly interactive work environments.
NVIDIA GRID technology offers the ability to offload graphics processing
from the CPU to the GPU in a virtualized environment allowing
applications�- from Microsoft (News - Alert)® Office to
high-performance, graphics-rich software - to be better utilized and
applied across cloud and desktop servers.
By working with NaviSite to offer a showing of a scalable, flexible
cloud-hosted solution, ViewSonic will demonstrate the combination of an
off-site, cloud-based virtual infrastructure with GPU virtualization and
how it can fit the needs and requirements of a manageable and flexible
DaaS system. Together, ViewSonic's CDE-8451-TL will illustrate the
unique user experience that GPU virtualization can bring to help
eliminate potential obstacles in VDI adoption.
"We're pleased to be working with NaviSite and NVIDIA to bring GRID
technology to the forefront and show how GPU virtualization can work in
a DaaS-based virtual desktop environment," said Michael Holstein, vice
president of business development and emerging technologies at ViewSonic
Americas. "This allows a new level of workstation performance to
organizations that prefer to implement a cloud-hosted VDI infrastructure
because of OPEX (News - Alert) benefits."
"A high-quality graphics experience is now a reality for VDI users,"
said Andrew Cresci, general manager of the NVIDIA GRID business at
NVIDIA. "ViewSonic's display is a great way to showcase the NaviSite and
NVIDIA GRID solution and illustrate how users can take�advantage of a
graphics-accelerated, cloud-hosted PC�without any compromise in
performance, even with the most demanding applications."
The CDE8451-TL is an 84-inch, six-point simultaneous touch, interactive
large-format display with 4K Ultra HD resolution. The large format LED
backlit screen and 4K (3840x2160) resolution delivers the finest in
color, clarity and image detail at four times the detail of traditional
1080p Full HD displays.
ViewSonic will also demonstrate the new SC-Z56 quad output zero client
and the new SD-Z246 zero client with integrated 24-inch LED and
ergonomic stand. With one of the most diverse lines in the market,
ViewSonic is the VDI endpoint authority. The company contiues to bring
leading-edge products to market, including Integrated Thin Client and
Zero Client Displays, along with discrete Thin and Zero Clients that
deliver a seamless desktop experience in VDI networks.
Visitors to the ViewSonic booth will have the opportunity to test the
power of NVIDIA GRID technology for themselves via the GRID Test Drive.
The first of its kind, GRID Test Drive is a simple and secure way for
anyone who is interested in experiencing the benefit of graphics
acceleration for virtualized desktops to do so immediately without first
having to build a proof-of-concept private cloud. The Test Drive comes
pre-loaded with a range of applications from basic web-based programs to
high-end professional 3D applications, plus users can download and try
other applications of their choice.
