Top Enterprise Technology Companies Embrace NVIDIA GRID

NVIDIA today announced that enterprises can for the first time seamlessly deliver GPU-accelerated virtual desktops and professional-graphics applications from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere. By using NVIDIA GRID technology, businesses are able to realize the benefits of virtualization -- security, manageability and flexibility -- while delivering the full PC experience that users expect. Dell, HP and IBM are offering NVIDIA GRID-based servers. Citrix, Microsoft and VMware are offering NVIDIA GRID-enabled software.

"IT departments face a growing challenge: employees increasingly bring their own devices to work, and expect mobility and a great experience," said Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. "Virtualization enables them to provide secure, consistent access to company resources, but at the expense of performance and features. GRID eliminates this compromise." At the heart of NVIDIA GRID enterprise solutions are NVIDIA GRID VGX software -- a complete stack of GPU virtualization, remoting and management libraries -- and NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 boards, which are purpose-built for demanding server environments.

HGST Launches the Industry's Highest Capacity 10K RPM Hard Drive

HGST (formerly Hitachi Global Storage Technologies and now a Western Digital company, NASDAQ: WDC) today announced the industry's highest-capacity 10,000 RPM, enterprise-class hard drive – the Ultrastar C10K1200. Providing a capacity extension to HGST's proven Ultrastar C10K900 product line, the new 2.5-inch Ultrastar C10K1200 features a SAS 6Gb/s interface for reliable data throughput, a 64MB cache buffer for optimized read/write response time, and a fast 10K rotational speed for reliable high-performance computing. All this, combined with the drive's low power, high capacity and high performance attributes, results in higher density servers, blades and network storage arrays that helps reduce space requirements, lowers cooling costs and improves total cost of ownership (TCO).

Increasing storage needs, shrinking floor space and budgets, and reducing power and cooling are just a few challenges that datacenter managers face today, making it challenging to scale and sustain business growth. Whether building datacenters for public clouds, private clouds or traditional datacenters, adopting the right tiered storage strategy delivers greater efficiencies in terms of reliability, performance, capacity and power, and can make a vast difference in the ability to lower TCO.
