Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

1. What are the advantages of adding GPU on a virtual desktop?

GPU is not just limited to customers who use high-end graphics applications on a virtual desktop. If your profession requires you to use a Windows computer in any form, you can benefit from GPU-based virtual desktop offered by Apps4Rent. Your overall computing performance is enhanced by adding GPU on a virtual desktop.

2. How does GPU work on a virtual desktop?

GPU works in conjunction with your server's CPU to enhance the processing performance. You can add dedicated or shared our GPUs to your virtual desktops or virtual servers. By running numerous smaller tasks in parallel, GPU takes the load away from CPU. This allows high-end applications that require a lot of computing power to run seamlessly on a virtual desktop.

3. Which applications are supported on GPU-powered virtual desktops?

Apps4Rent supports all Windows-based applications on our virtual desktops. If you are using graphics-intensive applications such as Machine Learning, 2D or 3D Rendering, transcoding, streaming, and gaming on a virtual desktop, you must add GPU to enhance the performance. Your favorite high-end applications located in your Windows desktop can be accessed through remote desktops, laptops, smartphones, Android or iOS devices, and Chromebooks. Local devices such as printers and USB devices work normally with the virtual desktops. You can scale the resources such as RAM, vCPU, vGPU, and storage as per your requirement anytime. See a list of cloud applications supported here.

4. Can multiple users simultaneously access the same application on a GPU-powered virtual desktop?

For majority of applications, multiple users can simultaneously use the same software on our virtual desktops. However, some applications may be designed in such a way that only a single user can access it in the Cloud. For the applications that support multiple users, you need at least our Dedicated Virtual Desktop Silver plan, and an appropriate multi-user license for that software. Check with our sales team to know if your application is supported for our higher plans.

5. Which vGPU plan should I choose - Shared or Dedicated?

Depending on your requirement, choose the right vGPU plan: Shared or Dedicated. In the Dedicated plan, the entire GPU and its memory are assigned to your virtual desktop or virtual server. They are setup as pass-through and resources are not shared with anyone. When you add a Dedicated GPU to your existing virtual desktop or virtual server-you get the complete horsepower and full benefits of the Nvidia hardware-accelerated GPU. At the same time, our shared vGPUs hit the sweet spot between price and performance. If you are looking for optimized performance or incrementally increase the performance and at the same time get cost benefits, then shared vGPU is the way ahead.

6. What applications are shared and dedicated GPU best suited for?

The shared GPUs are best suited for applications which are related with light streaming, Xsplitter, average use of 2D/3D, Machine Learning, trading, data mining, blockchain, medium gaming, and related applications. The dedicated GPUs are best suited for applications which revolve around VFX, MAYA, video encoding, HD streaming and gaming, high-end rendering, TeraChem, 3D rendering, AutoCAD, Autodesk, CAD software, Photoshop, OBS, and high-graphics applications.

7. Does Apps4Rent offer GPU in public clouds such as Azure?

Yes. Apps4Rent offers CUDA-powered GPU on Azure that can extract as much computing power required for rendering and streaming purposes. Discuss your requirements with us and we'll choose the right solution for you.

8. What GPU architecture is used by Apps4Rent?

Apps4Rent uses Nvidia Maxwell architecture which is one of the most advanced CUDA GPU ever made. It is 3 times faster than its first-generation predecessor with all the architectural benefits including improvements in logic partitioning control, balancing workloads, instruction scheduling, clock-gating granularity, increased instruction per clock cycle, and more. See our vGPU plans.

9. Can I scale resources as per my requirement?

Yes. Your virtual desktop comes with resources such as RAM, vCPU, vGPU, and storage which are scalable as per your requirement.

10. What uptime can I expect with your virtual desktop with vGPU?

We guarantee 99.9% uptime, which is the industry standard. For example, Microsoft Office 365 offers 99.9% uptime.

11. Does Apps4Rent include SSD and GPU in all the plans?

No. It only comes with SSD by default included in the plan while GPU can be added as an additional resource for better cloud performance at a cost. SSD is a storage device, while GPU is a processor. SSD is more responsive than a non-SSD storage device. With SSD storage, you get a smoother experience while navigating through your virtual desktop as compared to a non-SSD device which may face tiny lags. GPU is used for adding more computing power to a virtual desktop.

12. Do I get 24/7 Support?

Yes. You get 24/7 Support via phone, chat, and email from Microsoft-certified engineers. We work like your internal IT team while you focus on your core competencies.

13. Is my data safe and will it be backed up?

Yes. We are very serious about the data security of our customers. We have secure firewalls that keep your crucial data 100% safe. There is incremental backup daily and full backup weekly. If your organization is very rigorous about data security and meet compliance, you can foolproof your security by backing your data on Azure Backups.

14. Why should I choose Apps4Rent over other hosting companies?

Unlike other providers who may trick you to purchase separate desktops for each user, we do not ask you to purchase separate desktops for separate users. You could always add additional users to your current virtual desktop with our offering. This can reduce your costs by more than 50%. Add to that, our plans are priced at just $24.95/month. We also offer 15-day money back guarantee. We are a Microsoft Gold Partner in hosting, content, and collaboration.
