Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology is being used for new types of applications in fields ranging from education and geographic information systems (GIS) to manufacturing, oil and gas, and media and entertainment. But bringing a native experience for these applications to a VDI environment requires more graphic processing power than traditional servers with only CPUs can handle.
The solution is to use graphics processor units (GPUs), which are now available to drive heavy graphics processing and 3D rendering in professional design applications delivered via VDI– providing the graphics capacity these specialized applications need while also reducing costs for IT.
VDI grows up
Initial VDI implementations were fairly simple, for example in call centers traditional office applications like word processing, spreadsheets, and CRM software.
