VMware Partners with Google, Nvidia to Expand DaaS Cloud Computing Offerings

VMware focuses on the integration of DaaS cloud computing services and graphically intensive applications in Google’s Chromebooks.

vmwareGREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced by the Virtualization giant VMware yesterday on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 that, it is focusing on the virtual desk top and graphically intensive applications based on the cloud computing platform for the chromebooks. To substantiate this cloud computing based futuristic plan, it has established the partnership with the Google Corporation and Nvidia. The main focus of this partnership would be to work for implementation of the DaaS and graphically intensive applications to the Chromebooks by merging complementary technologies developed by these companies.

While talking about the vision of this partnership, it was elaborated that VMware’s device-aware adoptive technologies named as “Blast Performance” portfolio would be implemented with the GPU virtualization technology of Nvidia on the Google’s Chromebook to offer DaaS and graphic intensive applications based on the cloud computing technology. Nvidia is the sole owner of the GPU virtualization at the moment in the global marketplace, would be used to enhance the CPU utilization, high computation, and intensive graphic processing on the chromebooks.

In his official statement, the general manager and executive vice president of end user computing at VMware, Mr. Sanjay Poonen said, “We are breaking down traditional barriers to adopting virtual desktops and offering new economics for the delivery of graphics-intensive applications through the power of the cloud. Organizations of all industries and requirements will soon be able to embrace the mobile-cloud using a solution that offers a new way to work from three proven industry leaders.”

According to the statement of Nvidia, “The collaboration will help the participating firms optimize the performance of visual graphic applications deployed at scale, as well as optimize CPU utilization in order to allow more desktops to be squeezed onto a single server and extend the battery life of the clients.” “The companies have previously worked together to optimize the streaming of legacy Windows applications to Chromebooks via the cloud” the Nvidia statement added further.

This is very important to note that an aggressive growth for virtual desktop service through cloud computing platforms is being noticed in the marketplace – which is forcing different companies to capture the business through partnerships in this domain of cloud computing business.

Many researchers have projected the growth of DaaS services doubling the next one year time.
