MUMBAI, India, Oct. 10 -- Boston IT Solutions (India) Private Limited, now in its 20th year as distribution partner for Super Micro Computer, is proud to announce their latest server solutions based on NVIDIA GRID K2 boards for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) at Broadcast India 2013. Boston’s NVIDIA GRID technology-based platforms are fully validated to provide rich graphics in virtualised environments and support the best virtualisation software 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.
At Broadcast India 2013 Boston is presenting the Boston Quattro 1480-T: a fully integrated hardware and software stack based on Supermicro’s innovative FatTwin server platform and NVIDIA’s GRID technology. Featuring a unique four hot-pluggable node design, with each node containing dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2 processors, 128GB of ECC DDR3 memory and two of NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture-based K2 GRID boards, the Quattro 1480-T can be deployed in a high-density cluster to serve large-scale user pools. In doing so IT managers are now able to add their most graphics-intensive users to their virtual solution, improving user density while providing true PC performance and compatibility.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director for Boston Limited says, “Boston takes pride in unveiling our latest range of media optimised VDI solutions based on Supermicro hardware and innovative GRID technology from NVIDIA. Customers looking for the most efficient path to scalable enterprise platforms need look no further than Boston for dedicated NVIDIA GRID-optimised solutions.
