NVIDIA technology powers a number of commercial products. In addition to graphics processors built into top desktops, notebooks, workstations, cell phones, and PDAs, you can find NVIDIA media and communication processors (MCPs) in enterprise server offerings from HP and Sun Microsystems. As the clear market leader in supplying NVIDIA Quadro™ graphics cards and Quadro chipsets to the professional workstation market, NVIDIA has a built a reputation with its business customers as a technology leader with strong execution ability. NVIDIA built its strong position in the marketplace through partnerships with industry leaders like AMD, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and Sony. In designing the NVIDIA Business Platform, NVIDIA took a similar route, partnering with leading motherboard manufacturers, system builders, and software vendors.
By aligning IT purchasing cycles with the NVIDIA Business Platform’s yearly cadence, IT managers can qualify a system only once per year within their environment and continue to buy an identical PC image from system builders for at least one year. IT managers will no longer need to re-qualify multiple times per year and per system builder, saving countless person-hours that can be re-assigned to higher value projects. Through partnerships with leading remote management software vendors, NVIDIA Business Platform certified remote management software solutions allow IT managers to distribute critical software updates and manage security policies across their organization from a central console.
