Likelihood to Recommend

NVIDIA GRID vPC

Nvidia GRID is the only real ready-made hardware solution available for streaming game services, 3D graphics acceleration in Virtual Desktop Infrastructures, and 3D enhanced streaming apps. Grid is also great for processing large quantities of small data-sets, such as financial, trading, science, astronomy, and much more. Grid is also well known for digital currency mining, such as Bitcoin.

Oracle VDI

Considering Oracle VDI is not supported by Oracle anymore, and will not receive any future updates, I wouldn't recommend Oracle VDI for most scenarios. Unless your organization is under some strict contractual agreement or there is a feature in Oracle VDI that isn't supported in its modern successors/competitors (haven't come across a feature like that based on my experience), I would recommend using something like VMware Horizon.

Cons

NVIDIA GRID vPC

  • The cost for Nvidia GRID capable hardware is still very high, but is & has been dropping fairly rapidly.
  • Latency is a large problem for "interaction" based systems (Gaming, remote desktop use) and requires high-speed data, and hosting close to the client.
  • No real solutions for smaller businesses, but cloud hosting providers like SoftLayer are beginning to offer affordable hosted grid-capable environments.

Oracle VDI 7.0
Based on 2 answers
The easiest way to describe the performance is like this - when it is working, it works almost flawlessly. When it starts freezing, your day is going to get very interesting very quickly. As I have stated earlier, I used it for one purpose, and it did what I needed it to most of the time, but I did have issues with it.

Alternatives Considered

NVIDIA GRID vPC

Nvidia invented the graphics processor, and continues to provide high quality products, even in a new industry

Oracle VDI

VMware Horizon does everything that Oracle VDI is capable of doing and offers many more features, and unlike Oracle VDI, it is still receiving constant updates. Oracle VDI was a great solution for enterprise-level management of virtualized desktop when it was getting updates, but now that it won't be getting any, I would put it in the "outdated technology" category.

Return on Investment

NVIDIA GRID vPC

  • Allows us to simplify all of our VDI designs, as power users can be managed like all other cloud users, instead of requiring individual systems.
  • Provides a way of offering a substantial processing increase for computing/calculations over and above what additional CPUs could offers.
  • Offers the only "ready-made" solution for on-demand gaming services, after Sony purchased OnLive, and provides an affordable method for startups to enter the Industry.
Craig Nash | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle VDI

  • Pricing Models were harsh to begin with, so we invested more money on the license than we needed to.
  • Due to all of the laggy, buggy, and crashing interfaces, our administrators spent considerable additional time working on simple operations.
  • We missed out on many advanced features that Oracle VDI's competitors were rolling out, so we couldn't benefit from them.
