HP has released the HP DL380z Virtual Workstation, providing remote access to workstation-class applications from devices such as thin clients, notebooks and tablets. An extension of the HP virtualization family, the HP DL380z is designed for work in engineering, CAD, digital media and government industries.
The DL380z is equipped with dual NVIDIA GRID K2 graphics cards and GRID virtualization. It is certified for Citrix virtualization, including HDX 3D Pro technology. Secure data transmission is through encrypted pixel data via LAN or WAN to remote uses. IT management can also configure pass-through or virtual GPU modes, depending on usage needs.
HP Remote Graphics Software and HP Velocity are also supported.
“The HP solution will deliver dynamic, high-performance graphics that take full advantage of NVIDIA’s GRID technologies—the first virtualized GPUs designed for data center delivery of graphics applications,” said Justin Boitano, general manager, Cloud & Virtualization Solutions, NVIDIA. “These data center solutions will provide true workstation-class high-performance computing experiences in a virtual ecosystem made possible by GRID GPUs.”
According to HP, the DL380z will be demonstrated at Citrix Synergy in Los Angeles May 6-8, and be available in June.
