Better by Any Measure: NVIDIA Offers Industry's First Complete Virtual GPU Monitoring.


 

Developers can now access our NVIDIA Virtual GPU software management SDK to build monitoring and management solutions optimized for their GPU enabled virtual infrastructure.

What is NVIDIA Virtual GPU software management SDK?

The NVIDIA Virtual GPU software management SDK provides an open platform for ISV’s and organizations deploying NVIDIA virtualization solutions. The SDK enables developers to build monitoring and management solutions that can provide data-driven insights into how their GPU-accelerated environment is performing.

User experience is central to ensuring desktop virtualization success, and more organizations are looking for a lifecycle approach that extends from design to operations to support. The NVIDIA Virtual GPU software management SDK exposes valuable information that can aid IT across the lifecycle of a VDI deployment. NVIDIA taking this open platform approach to make it easier for every organization to tap into the power of the GPU to deliver a better user experience for all.

Using the NVIDIA Virtual GPU software management SDK, developers can create the tools and solutions that IT needs to ensure a consistently great user experience delivered with an optimized infrastructure that scales cost-effectively.
