The three-tier offerings, designed for the complexities of virtualized environments, deliver a richer graphics experience for desktops running on vSTAC R2S and vSTAC R2S P Cubed appliances. These partner-certified and tested graphics acceleration offerings deliver a streamlined user experience by maximizing graphics operations and display times.
