IntroductionVDI has become increasingly popular with the broadened availability of mobilebroadband, higher bandwidth, more compute power in modern mobile devices, higherdisplay resolutions and a trend of BYOD within enterprises.Why Supermicro Ultra System forVDISupermicro Ultra rackmount serversare engineered to offer unrivaledperformance, flexibility, scalability andserviceability and therefore ideallysuited to CPU and memory intensiveworkloads.Ultra systems feature dual sockets,24 DIMM slots, and support highperformance GPUs with up to 32GBvideo memory. The 1U systems cansupport up to 10 hot-swap 2.5" drivebays, while the 2U systems can supportup to 24 drives to accommodate a widerange of application requirements.Supermicro has developed a line of fully validated server solutions featuring highperformance GPUs from NVIDIA, along with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software, to addressthe rapidly growing Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) market. These solutions include aSupermicro Ultra, FatTwin and 4U Tower SuperServers configured with dual Intel Xeon CPUs, up to 3TB DDR4 memory and NVIDIA vGPU software with Tesla GPUs based on theNVIDIA Volta, Pascal , or Maxwell architectures that deliver best-in-class vGPU softwarewith virtual desktop experience to users anytime and anywhere.NVIDIA vGPU technology brings the power of NVIDIA GPUs to virtual machines withan immersive user experience for anyone, from knowledge workers to engineers anddesigners. NVIDIA vGPU technology meets the increasing performance demands ofmodern apps and Windows 10, bringing graphics and compute acceleration to the datacenter, enabling IT to centralize apps and data, and deliver virtual desktops that offerimproved management security and productivity.Businesses can now deliver cost‐effective high graphics performance with greaterscalability, and transform traditional workflows and liberating users from the confines ofConfidential: NDA RequiredPC’s and offices, to enable real‐time collaboration from anywhere, anytime, on any device.vGPU Virtualization LayerSupermicro Ultra systems feature bestcooling design for up to 165W CPU TDPwith 56 cores/112 threads when GPUis installed, which can support up to112 virtual machines with a 1:1 vCPU tophysical thread ratio.VirtualWorkstationVirtual PCVirtual PCVirtual cs DriverNVIDIAGraphics DriverNVIDIAGraphics DriverNVIDIAQuadro DriverNVIDIAQuadro DriverNVIDIAQuadro DrivervGPUvGPUvGPUvGPUvGPUvGPUHypervisorNVIDIA Virtual GPU SoftwareSupermicro Ultra ified Hypervisors:2 VMware ESXi 5.5 U2 or newer Citrix XenServer 6.2 or newerHigh Performance GPU Accelerated Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Solutions with Supermicro Ultra SuperServersNVIDIA Tesla GPU

Multiple MonitorSupport multiple displays for up to four 4K monitors* per virtual machine, improvingproductivity and user experience. Native Performance ExperienceWith NVIDIA vGPU software and Tesla GPUs, virtual desktops can perform likenative PCs to every user. Linux OS ApplicationsDeliver like-native performance of virtual desktops to software developers and EDAdesigners that rely on a Linux-based development environment. Optimized for Microsoft Windows 10Windows 10 is Microsoft’s most graphically intensive operating system to date, withcommon productivity applications like Office 365, Skype and YouTube requiring GPUacceleration to function properly, so many general purpose VDI users require a GPUfor better user experiences.High Graphics Performance VDI SolutionsHigh Graphics Performance VDI Use CasesTarget MarketUse CasesCommon ApplicationsHealthcareFor remotely viewing and editingvery large and complex medicalimages (PACS) EMR , PACS, Eclipse Medical Imaging General purpose VDI with multi-monitor support and Windows 10.ManufacturingFor remotely viewing and editingvery large 3D models and images PTC Creo, Siemens PLM NX, Autodesk AutoCAD, Dassault SystèmesSOLIDWORKS and CATIA, ANSYS Discovery Live and Fluent.
