Yes, you really can deliver 3D professional graphics from the Cloud (private or public). And now, with highly scalable GRID cards (Kepler GPUs) from NVIDIA, plus H.264-based Deep Compression and XenDesktop 7 GPU Sharing for Hosted Shared (RDS) workloads, this technology has become irresistibly affordable not just for the top tier of design engineers but also for the large second tier of users who simply need to view or make edits to large 3D models.

And what if you have a requirement to deliver 3D apps from a Windows desktop VM rather than Windows Server? Citrix CEO Mark Templeton and NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang shared the stage at the Synergy conference in Anaheim, California, to show us all how far this technology has come and to announce that a Tech Preview of GPU sharing for VDI workloads is coming soon (Q3 2013).
