NVIDIA --
NVIDIA has announced their GRID 2.0 platform while also unveiling their Tesla M6 and M60 server cards.

GRID is NVIDIA's virtual GPU technology for "sharing true virtual GPU hardware acceleration between multiple users." Notable to GRID 2.0 is Linux support to complement Windows. GRID 2.0 also aims to have 2x greater density, 2x greater performance, support for 128 users per server, and now supports 4K displays.

Linux on NVIDIA GRID 2.0 is being supported in the form of an official blessing for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu Linux, though other distributions should too be supported. Linux on GRID is largely coming thanks to big NVIDIA customers requiring Linux support.
