The DNA of an ITQ employee includes passion. In most cases, that’s a passion for technology. Technologies that can help our customers accelerate and enable them to go the extra mile. In this case, acceleration is quite literally because we are happy to announce that ITQ has become a Solution Adviser Partner with NVIDIA. In this partnership, we are able to help customers with the advice, design, and implementation of both the hardware as well as the software products from NVIDIA.

“NVIDIA and ITQ have a shared passion for innovation and technology”, says Robert Hellings, CEO at ITQ. “With services from ITQ and solutions from NVIDIA, we are able to help customers to take the next step in their Digital Transformation. Creating a perfect user experience or accelerating medical research are perfect examples of our combined services and products”.

One of the reasons why we think the partnership between ITQ and NVIDIA is a perfect fit is because the NVIDIA technology stack fits in multiple propositions within ITQ. Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) with VMware Horizon is where it all started. With NVIDIA GRID K1, we were able to create a great user experience with a variation of (complex) use cases. Now, many architectures later, VDI is still a great use case for NVIDIA Tesla hardware and vGPU software.

Another perfect use case for these solutions is Artificial Intelligence. Some of our customers are running machine learning or deep learning workloads on their VMware vSphere platform and heavily benefit from NVIDIA’s GPUs and virtualization software to speed up the computations and increase the number of workloads they can run simultaneously.

The partnership even extends to our Cloud-Native team, as they are able to quickly deploy NVIDIA’s Graphics Cloud containers with so much ease that designing and deploying a custom application stack for applications, like TensorFlow, isn’t necessary anymore.

To celebrate our partnership, NVIDIA has become a Gold Sponsor for our annual Transform! Event. At the event, you will be able to have a chat with the NVIDIA team and get all the answers about GPUs, the use cases, and get the best advice possible. Jits Langedijk (Solutions Architect at NVIDIA) will present a session about GPUs and how they fit in a modern enterprise.

Check his session out on the ITQ Transform! site.
