As we are heading out to Esri User Conference next week, I thought it would be appropriate to give you an update on how Esri--the leader in Geographic Information System (GIS) technology used by 300,000 organizations worldwide--NVIDIA, and VMware are partnering together around desktop virtualization in four steps.
Step 1: Esri has been an active member of NVIDIA and VMware Early Access Program geared towards the launch of virtual GPU (vGPU) enabled desktops. Since this product was shipped in March 2015 just before NVIDIA “GPU Technology Conference”, the Early Access Program has been converted to a NVIDIA and VMware Community (NVC) to accelerate Esri ArcGIS pro deployments using virtualization. You can join us now.
