Video: vSGA and vDGA solutions in VMware Horizon

While VDI solutions are starting to attract a wider audience in the enterprises, the challenge is moved to provide 3D graphics-enabled virtual desktops.

Yesterday NVIDIA launched its NVIDIA GRID Test Drive, available now for Windows in North America, with Asia Pacific and European deployments available soon, VMware on its side published two videos that show Horizon suite’s ability to provide Virtual Shared Graphics Acceleration (vSGA) and Virtual Dedicated Graphics Acceleration (vDGA) solutions.

To be clear with a vSGA solution you are sharing server-side GPU resources (from one or more video cards) through multiple virtual machines, with a vDGA solution you are dedicating a specific video card or GPU to a specific VM via DirectPath I/O.
