    Not exactly sure what it is. Would it let me have a gaming VM with near-native speed? Anyone care to explain?

      secure your data with NVidia Grid?

      [sarcasm]yea, because nothing is more secured than shared cloud service[/sarcasm]

        I think Nvidia GRID is used to expose virtual accelerated GPUs to cloud-based VM solutions.

        For instance, Amazon EC2 offers servers with vGPU options and a new service called LiquidSky (which will actually be coming to Linux soon) will let you rent a Windows 10 server with an Nvidia GRID vGPU so that you can play your Windows Steam games and other grames in OnLive-style fashion on mobile devices and Linux. I did a GPUZ test on on a LiquidSky session and it was indeed Nvidia GRID.

          Okay, so this has nothing at all to do with integrating CUDA with the GRID Engine. The fact that I assumed it did says a lot about where my mind is at right now.

            Took me a bit of digging, but I finally figured it out:





            Essentially: it's a way to encode a screen -that would otherwise be displayed to the user- to h.264 directly on the server?s GPU, so it can be sent to a "dumb client" that will just decode the h.264 and play it as if it was a video, while sending back whatever user input.

            Think RDP with GPU-accelerated h.264.

              This already exists if you have a graphics card to pass through.

                I know and im using it. Still interested in other possible options. Aside from kvm there isnt anything just as good it seems.

                  AMD has also launched a similar solution, built around industry standard SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) technology:
