NVIDIA today announced the availability of the NVIDIA GRID 2.0 virtualisation technology here in South East Asia at the vForum Singapore event. The performance, efficiency and flexibility improvements in the latest release of NVIDIA GRID mean enterprise businesses around the globe can now deliver even the most graphics-intensive applications to any connected device virtually.

With NVIDIA GRID 2.0, employees can work from almost anywhere without delays in downloading files, increasing their productivity. IT departments can equip workers with instant access to powerful applications, improving resource allocation.

NVIDIA GRID 2.0 integrates the GPU into the data centre, improving overall workflow performance by doubling user density over the previous version, allowing up to 128 users per server. This enables enterprises to scale more cost effectively, expanding service to more employees at a lower cost per user. Using the latest version of NVIDIA’s award-winning Maxwell GPU architecture, NVIDIA GRID 2.0 delivers twice the application performance as before, exceeding the performance of many native clients.

“We see tremendous opportunity for graphics-accelerated virtual desktops in businesses such as manufacturing, oil and gas, government, and higher education across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand,” said Ivy Rayner, Senior Director Enterprise Business, Asia Pacific South, Worldwide Field Operations, NVIDIA.
