@nvidia continues to push forward and deliver new capabilities in our cloud-mobile accelerated computing strategy.
On the gaming side, we recently announced GeForce NOW. Referred to by some of the press as “NetFlix for gaming”, GeForce NOW is a next generation cloud gaming service that streams PC games to NVIDIA SHIELD instantly, including the new SHIELD Android TV Box. Your game runs on powerful GPU servers running in the cloud and lets you enjoy gaming on your living room TV or anywhere you take your SHIELD portable or SHIELD tablet.
In public cloud, the big news has been Microsoft’s announcement of the new N-series GPU instances. Powered by NVIDIA’s latest Tesla M60 and Tesla K80 GPUs, N-series is the ideal cloud platform for running graphic intensive workloads with NVIDIA GRID 2.0 (M60) and HPC and Deep Learning workloads (K80).
Speaking of GRID 2.0, one of the key new features of GRID 2.0 is the ability to run native CUDA applications inside your GRID 2.0 virtual machine. Today’s enterprise applications don’t just need high quality graphics, but increasingly need to run accelerated algorithms inside graphical apps to crunch through huge quantities of big data. Now every CUDA and OpenACC app can run unmodified right in your VM.
