Case studies in Education – NVIDIA GRID

There are now so many GRID case studies both from NVIDIA and the vast number of partners involved including:

  • OEMS (Cisco, Dell, Lenovo, Supermicro, HPE…)
  • Storage/HCI/SDN vendors: Atlantis, Nutanix, NetApp, EMC…
  • Virtualisation and protocol vendors: Citrix, Microsoft, VMware, Teradici…

And so many use cases, applications deployed…. That frankly I can’t keep track or remember the specifics so I’ve set myself up an index to track these by industry:  https://virtuallyvisual.wordpress.com/useful-links/remote-graphics-case-studies/

Taking Education as an example I’ve collated a vast list in a format where I can use ctrl-f to find a specific app or server… below are all the ones I’ve collated to date, split by VMware / Citrix….
