NVIDIA GRID VCA (Visual Computing Appliance)

The NVIDIA GRID VCAThe NVIDIA GRID™ Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is the only platform certified and supported by Dassault Systems to virtualize and remotely deliver SolidWorks 2014 over the network.

The new NVIDIA GRID™ Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is ideal for any in-house design shop or small to medium-sized business looking to deliver complex design applications to their users remotely. This powerful GPU-based system sends the graphics output from applications like those from Adobe®, Autodesk®, and SolidWorks® over the network to be displayed on a Windows, Mac, or Linux client.

NVIDIA Grid BenefitsVCA can be centrally located and accessed via the company network. GPU acceleration gives users working locally or remotely, including notebooks or mobile devices, the same SolidWorks 2014 experience they would get from a dedicated high performance desk-side workstation. It’s a powerful tool for small and medium-size businesses looking to provide their workforce with workstation-class performance anywhere, anytime - without the IT complexity of commercial virtualization solutions.


KEY BENEFITS OF THE GRID VCA
  • Turnkey simplicity, easy installation and management
  • Enhanced security because the GRID VCA is a stateless device—valuable files and data sets are stored on NAS, not locally
  • Workstation-class graphics with NVIDIA Kepler architecture
  • Delivers graphics-intensive applications over the network to 8 concurrent users
  • Full integration—all hardware and software needed to support up to 8 users in one box
  • Designers get high-end NVIDIA GPU performance on any Windows, Mac, or Linux PC.
  • Highest quality-of-service for each user
  • Compact 4u form factor for easy mounting into a server rack. Or take the GRID VCA on site for secure project work.
  • Support by professional application ISVs including Adobe, Autodesk, and SolidWorks
