ViON and Nutanix Showcase Hyperconverged Infrastructure-Based Solution Designed for GIS Operations at 2018 ESRI User Conference

Corporation, a cloud service provider and market leader in the
design, delivery and maintenance of mission-critical IT infrastructure
solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Nutanix to
showcase a new hyperconverged infrastructure-based (HCI) solution using
its Enterprise Cloud Platform and featuring NVIDIA GPUs at the 2018 ESRI
user conference in San Diego July 9-13. This solution leverages data
locality, web-scale, hyperconverged architecture, and powerful GPU
technology to support performance and end-user experience demands while
ensuring availability and easy scaling to effectively run GIS software,
and, through ViON’s as-a-Service model, it’s now more cost-effective to
acquire. This partnership enables GIS users to efficiently manage image
files and make the most of their GIS mapping technology without
burdening their budget.

Nutanix’s HCI-based Enterprise Cloud solution integrates NVIDIA GRID
technology supporting multiple GPU video cards from a single server
block and providing the ability to run many virtual GPU sessions for GIS
servers or desktops. This solution prevents performance loss for
mission-critical GIS operations. Supported by VION’s Data Center
as-a-Service financial model, it is a low risk approach to driving GIS
desktop applications on VDI.

“By partnering with Nutanix, we are able to support the most demanding
environments with next-generation technology to ensure optimal
performance of GIS desktops – all in a flexible as-a-Service model,”
said Tom Frana, ViON CEO and Chairman. “Our as-a-Service approach allows
us to help more organizations capitalize on the benefits that this
solution has to offer, including enhancing the scalability and
performance of GIS servers and desktops, regardless of GIS user
community growth.”
