NVIDIA Accelerated Solutions on Nutanix 

NVIDIA provides graphics acceleration via graphics processing units (GPUs), network connectivity via data processing units (DPUs), and management software for use with virtual machines (VMs) running on x86 systems. NVIDIA also provides curated software tools for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) workloads.

NVIDIA accelerated solutions on Nutanix support virtual app and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for end user computing and also AI and ML workflows via the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software on Nutanix AHV.


Nutanix clusters currently support a variety of NVIDIA GPU models and now the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software for analytics and ML tools running on AHV.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise software on Nutanix AHV 

The NVIDIA AI Enterprise software provides curated frameworks, models, and data science tools for AI and ML workflows, all of which are certified to seamlessly integrate with Nutanix AHV. 

Current solutions are available for audio transcription (Speech-to-Text) applications, virtual assistants (chatbots), and digital fingerprinting to detect cyber threats.

NVIDIA GPUs and End User Computing

NVIDIA virtual GPU is a graphics virtualization platform that extends the power of NVIDIA GPU technology to virtual desktops and apps. It delivers an immersive, high-quality user experience for everyone from designers to mobile professionals to office workers. NVIDIA virtual GPU technology lets IT tap into a powerful graphics-accelerated solution to centralize apps and data, with virtual workspaces that offer improved security, productivity, and cost-efficiency. The NVIDIA virtual GPU solution along with Nutanix AHV enables customers to assign the right level of resources to users based on their requirements. AHV supports NVIDIA GRID™ vPC, vApps, and NVIDIA® Quadro® vDWS software.

NVIDIA Networking

With industry leading density, power efficiency and low latency, the NVIDIA® Mellanox Spectrum® switches are the first non-blocking leaf/spine switches providing unmatched performance advantage while lowering operating expenses. 

While Nutanix solutions natively converge compute, storage and virtualization into a single invisible infrastructure for all enterprise workloads at any scale, NVIDIA’s solutions provide invisible networking, greatly reducing the networking complexity in deployment and operations, especially when the web-like scale and enterprise-class reliability are required.
