NVIDIA Tesla T4 Powers Next Generation of Virtual Workstations

The NVIDIA Tesla T4 GPU now supports virtualized workloads with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software. The software, including NVIDIA GRID Virtual PC (GRID vPC) and NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS), provides virtual machines with the same breakthrough performance and versatility that the T4 offers to a physical environment. And it does so using the same NVIDIA graphics drivers that are deployed on non-virtualized systems.

NVIDIA launched T4 at GTC Japan as an AI data center platform for bare-metal servers. It’s designed to meet the needs of public and private cloud environments as their scalability requirements grow. It has seen rapid adoption, including its recent release on the Google Cloud Platform. The Tesla T4 is the most universal GPU to date — capable of running any workload to drive greater data center efficiency. In a bare-metal environment, T4 accelerates diverse workloads, including deep learning training and inferencing as well as graphics. Support for virtual desktops with GRID vPC and Quadro vDWS software is the next level of workflow acceleration.
