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.

Teradici

I haven't used it as much over WAN connections but I am familiar with Teradici's efficiency over slow links. In our LAN, environment, the best feature is central management and small footprint. These primarily go into lab, testing and kiosk areas due to minimal hardware outlay and easier to lock down.

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.

Teradici

  • What was once free is no longer free, that is, management
  • Version compatibility between different generations is complicated
  • Not the most compatible solution

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

Teradici

VMware Blast! is now VMware's standard for VDI. It has some features that make it better in a VMware environment. Existing PCoIP systems we have are Teradici-based so I am glad that standard is still available. When it comes to hardware, Teradici is still the most available so we continue to choose them.

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.

Teradici

  • Failure rate of devices is really low
  • Even without firmware updates, zero clients remain useful years after placement
  • Zero clients and virtualized desktops infrastructure is competitive with dedicated PC's
