Bringing 3D Graphics to BladeSystem

on ‎12-11-2013 12:12 PM

HP is doing great things in the remote grahics acceleration with the WS460c Workstation blade, which provides hardware accelerated graphics for desktop virtualization using the newest NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 cards.


Today, Citrix brings the power of the new NVIDIA GRID cards together with XenDesktop and HDX 3D Pro to enable truly remarkable performance for secure collaboration of 3D Pro Graphics apps delivered from the datacenter. The HP ProLiant WS460c Graphics Server Blade, coupled with Citrix XenDesktop 7.1 can help enterprises deliver comprehensive graphics acceleration capabilities for VDI in a blade form factor. It also now comes with the Intel Xeon E5‑2600 v2 12-core processors and 1866 MHz DDR3 memory and can provide up to 60 percent cost reduction per seat, when compared to previous generation workstation blades. Finally, it furnishes savings in power, space and management while achieving up to 4X improvement in user density with HP’s Accelerated Graphics Card – which hosts up to 8 graphics-intense users per blade.


NVIDIA GRID vGPU technology on Citrix XenDesktop 7.1 ensures businesses are able to give designers and engineers the ability to work remotely and still utilize graphics-intensive applications affordably. This means that all you 3D guys can use their notebooks and mobile devices to get the job done without being constrained by subpar performance provided by some software-emulated graphics.
