These partner-certified and tested graphics acceleration offerings deliver a streamlined user experience by maximising graphics operations and display times. By incorporating powerful performance and graphics processing offload cards, users with advanced multimedia, workstation, or graphics-intensive application needs are assured maximum desktop density.

NVIDIA GRID technology delivers the ability to offload graphics processing from the central processing unit (CPU) to the graphics processing unit (GPU) in virtualised environments, allowing the data centre manager to deliver graphics-rich experiences to users.

The Teradici® PCoIP® Hardware Accelerator (APEX 2800) reduces CPU overhead by offloading the most active 100 virtual displays to ensure its capabilities are used where most needed. In the process, the server consolidation ratio increases up to 2x.

Pivot3 vSTAC® products are purpose-built converged storage appliances that deliver simplicity, scalability and savings to VMware Horizon Suite deployments. The appliances simplify system operation and management by eliminating any need for SAN expertise. Today, the Pivot3 vSTAC R2S is the only converged storage appliance purpose-built for Horizon Suite that ships from the factory pre-configured and ready-to-deploy.
