RESEARCH PAPER: GPU’s Unlock VDI For Many More Users

By Patrick Moorhead, Rhett Dillingham - September 16, 2019

Designers, engineers and broader creative roles, such as graphic artists, have applications that can be very graphics processing intensive. These applications require high performance computing capabilities and present challenges for IT leaders looking to broaden virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments within their organizations —whether through full desktop virtualization or virtualization of specific applications. In addition, as the applications commonly used by knowledge workers have evolved, their growing graphics processing requirements have become a challenge for VDI delivery of a high-quality user experience. Whether deploying on private infrastructure or public cloud or even consuming via SaaS in on-premises, core cloud or edge environments, addressing these challenges delivers significant business value, because the more IT can broaden a VDI deployment across an organization, the greater the benefits in increased data security and reduced client management cost.
