May 23 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, today announced that Supermicro SuperServer platforms integrate NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 boards for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) support in the enterprise. These VDI solutions can be deployed in high-density clusters to serve large-scale user pools. Supermicro's NVIDIA GRID technology-based platforms are fully validated to provide the most responsive user experience and support virtualization via software solutions from Citrix, VMware and Microsoft. NVIDIA GRID K2 boards are optimized for graphics and 3D-intensive tasks in Adobe applications, Autodesk and SolidWorks, while NVIDIA GRID K1 boards offer high-density VDI for knowledge workers. OEMs and service providers looking to take advantage of this new virtualized computing power can deploy highly scalable solutions on Supermicro 1U, 2U, 4U/Tower, and 4U FatTwin NVIDIA GRID enterprise server configurations.
"Supermicro provides the best server solutions for virtualized infrastructure in terms of performance per watt, per dollar and NVIDIA GRID support is a natural extension of our platforms," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "Indeed, our success developing the world's largest selection of GPU-based HPC solutions has led to this innovation for virtualized enterprise applications. Customers looking for the most effective and efficient path to scalable enterprise platforms need look no further than Supermicro for a dedicated selection of NVIDIA GRID optimized solutions."
"With NVIDIA GRID, hardware-accelerated graphics is delivered to desktop virtualization users, finally giving them the performance and compatibility that has been standard in PCs for decades," said Jeff Brown, vice president and general manager of the GRID business unit at NVIDIA. "With Supermicro's wide selection of certified server solutions, IT professionals have the flexibility to quickly design and deploy optimized, virtualized desktop platforms throughout their organizations."
