HP Adds Virtualization Features To Its Z Workstation Family
HP today announced a virtual workstation solution that provides remote access to workstation-class applications from a variety of devices including thin clients, notebooks and tablets.
The HP DL380z Virtual Workstation brings together HP's server technology, NVIDIA virtualization technology and Citrix virtualization technology.
The HP DL380z is an extension of the HP family of virtualization solutions designed for evolving work styles within the fields of engineering, CAD, AEC (architecture, engineering and construction), digital media, oil and gas exploration, education and government. It also uses the industry-standard 2U form factor, which means it can easily integrate into existing data center infrastructure.
The new HP DL380z enables use of dual NVIDIA GRID K2 graphics cards and NVIDIA GRID GPU virtualization, supports up to eight users on one workstation. NVIDIA Quadro K6000, K5000 and K4000 graphics cards also are supported.
The HP DL380z is certified for the Citrix virtualization stack including HDX 3D Pro technology.
The server keeps sensitive data centralized and secure by transmitting encrypted pixel data over LAN or WAN to remote users. It also allows for flexible IT management with a choice of pass-through GPU and virtual GPU modes that can be configured according to usage needs.
The HP DL380z also supports HP Remote Graphics Software (RGS) and the ability to host collaboration sessions from multiple devices and multiple operating systems including Linux. The workstation also supports HP Velocity software, which improves network performance.
The HP DL380z is planned to be available beginning in June.
