For my client we are seriously considering the use of nVidia Grid technology. Our users (about 600 concurrent(!)) can be considered knowledge workers. They use a 2D GIS applicaton and sometimes streaming video CCTV, the rest of their apps is not graphically intensive. That is why we would like to use the profile with just 512 MB of memory, so that we can support 16 concurrent users per M6 card. The unusual thing about this client is the use of multiple screens. The thin clients used will (based on the current plans) be equipped with 3 screens, one 34 inch with a resolution of 3440x1440 and two with a resolution of 2560x1440 (so somewhat lower than the maximum supported resolution of UHD). Based on the information on this page: http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/buy-nvidia-grid-uk.html, there seems to be a limit, with implies that with the use of more than two screen, you need to use the profile with 2GB of memory or more. This would imply that we can only support 4 concurrent knowledge workers per M6 card. This makes the business case for the use of NVidia Grid much less interesting. Could you please let me know if there is a possibility to use the 512 MB (or 1024 MB) profile in combination with the three mentioned screens? Are the limits of two and four screens hard technical limits, or also dependent on the resolution used?
I would very much appreciate a serious answer, given the size of this project. Thank you very much in advance!
With kind regards,
