Citrix™ Platinum Resellers Endorse NVIDIA GRID Technology; First NVIDIA Certified Partners to Offer Technology That Supports Rich Graphics in a Virtualized Environment
MONTVALE, NJ--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - M7 Global Partners, a consortium of leading U.S. IT consulting firms and Citrix™ platinum resellers, today announced that it has added NVIDIA GRID™ technology to its portfolio of IT products and services. M7 Global Partners are the first NVIDIA Certified Partners to market with this technology, which will allow its customers to offload graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in virtual environments. With direct access to the GPU, users on virtual desktops can receive the same rich, high-performance graphics experience they would get with a dedicated PC on their desktops.
"This is a significant milestone for M7 Global Partners and our customers," said Mike Strohl, CEO of Entisys Solutions, Inc. and Agile360, and Founding Partner of M7 Global Partners. "One of customers' greatest pain points for years now has been the inability to centralize the delivery of graphics intensive applications. The NVIDIA GRID technology is a game changer, and we are eager to support our customers in deploying CAD or photo editing solutions within their virtual environments in the healthcare, education and public sector settings."
With NVIDIA GRID, customers are able to leverage industry-leading virtualization solutions including Citrix, Microsoft® and VMware™ to add their most graphics-intensive users to their virtual environments and improve productivity. Furthermore, key benefits of the NVIDIA GRID technology include highly responsive Microsoft Windows® and rich multimedia experiences, access to critical applications including those that are 3-D intensive, and access to these applications from anywhere, and from a variety of devices.
"M7 Global Partners is delighted to be on board with NVIDIA in bringing this ground-breaking technology to market," said Ira Silverman, CEO, Gotham Technology Group, and Founding Partner of M7 Global Partners. "We are especially excited about being able to bring our customers a solution that they both want and need in order to make the most of their virtual infrastructure environments by extending improvements in user productivity to their graphics-intensive users."
"The M7 Global Partners immediately grasped what NVIDIA GRID technology would do for its customers," said Will Wade, director of the NVIDIA GRID business. "Their enthusiasm for GRID was further evidence that we had identified a gaping hole in the VDI world. With virtual GPU technology and a set of strong IT services companies to deploy it, enterprises can finally provide a true, full PC experience to all its virtual desktop users -- from the power users and designers to the knowledge workers."
