Mi­crosoft Azure, To­gether with NVIDIA GRID 2.0 and Tesla Plat­form, to En­able Pro­fes­sional Graph­ics and Ac­cel­er­ated Com­put­ing from the Cloud

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

NVIDIA an­nounced the de­ploy­ment of the lat­est ver­sion of NVIDIA GRID, which al­lows Mi­crosoft Azure to of­fer GPU-en­abled pro­fes­sional graph­ics ap­pli­ca­tions and ac­cel­er­ated com­put­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties through its cloud plat­form.

With it, busi­nesses can de­ploy NVIDIA Quadro-grade ca­pa­bil­i­ties through Azure or a hy­brid of Mi­crosoft and Linux vir­tual ma­chines. This is in ad­di­tion to the NVIDIA Tesla Ac­cel­er­ated Com­put­ing Plat­form, which is pow­ered by the flag­ship K80 GPU ac­cel­er­a­tor.

With this im­ple­mented in its N-Se­ries vir­tual ma­chines, Azure can dra­mat­i­cally ex­pand ac­cess to su­per­com­put­ing-class per­for­mance and ac­cel­er­a­tion with­out re­quir­ing en­ter­prises to in­vest in, build and main­tain ded­i­cated com­put­ing resources.

“Our vi­sion is to de­liver ac­cel­er­ated graph­ics and high per­for­mance com­put­ing to any con­nected de­vice, re­gard­less of lo­ca­tion. We are ex­cited to col­lab­o­rate with Mi­crosoft Azure to give en­gi­neers, de­sign­ers, con­tent cre­ators, re­searchers and other pro­fes­sion­als the abil­ity to vi­su­al­ize com­plex, data-in­ten­sive de­signs ac­cu­rately from any­where,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, Co-Founder and CEO of NVIDIA.

NVIDIA GRID 2.0 pro­vides all of the ad­van­tages of the Quadro GPUs, as well as other en­hance­ments, in­clud­ing dou­ble the ap­pli­ca­tion per­for­mance of the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion GRID GPUs, and Linux OS sup­port.

“As a leader in ad­vanced vi­su­al­iza­tion, NVIDIA GPUs were a clear choice for our new N-Se­ries com­pute fam­ily. NVIDIA and Mi­crosoft have a long his­tory of en­abling industry-wide in­no­va­tion and we look for­ward to work­ing with them to bring this rev­o­lu­tion­ary cloud ex­pe­ri­ence to our cus­tomers,” said Ja­son Zan­der, Cor­po­rate Vice Pres­i­dent, Mi­crosoft Azure.
