Dedicated 1:1 Blade PCs
PCoIP Blade PCs
ClearCube® Blade PCs deliver the highest datacenter-to-desktop PCoIP remote performance available in blade computers.
Blade PCs provide IT organizations with the ability to address the needs of VMware Horizon power users in Centralized & Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (CVDI) environments by utilizing the robust features of Intel® Xeon and Core™ i7/i5 series processors PCI-Express® graphics, SSD drives, on-board dual Ethernet connections plus PCoIP connections.
Blade PCs also provide 1:1 dedicated high performance for Centralized Desktop Infrastructure (CDI) users for fat client use cases (mission-critical apps, legacy apps, in-house developed apps) where virtual desktop performance will not satisfy the user requirement for speed, graphics, and application compatibility.
- Virtual desktop benefits without virtualizing
- Intel® Core i5 Processors (R3162D)
- Intel Core i7/i5 Processors (R3082D/A6106H
- Intel Xeon Processors (M1032, M1034)
- Integrated PCoIP Adapters
- High Performance Graphics at 60 frames per second
- Rack dense 16 Blade PCs in 3U (R3162D)
- Rack Dense 8 Blade PCs in 3U (R3082)
- Rack Dense 10 Blade PCs in 6U (A6106H)
ClearCube Blade PC are specially designed with embedded PCoIP™ and GPU adapters that host IP connections from remote desktop zero client end point devices. Dual and Quad PCoIP™ Host Cards transparently redirect USB from the desktop back to the Blade PC.
R Series (dual and triple monitor)
R3082D Blade PCs with integrated PCoIP host compression adapters connect to ClearCube Cloud Desktop Zero Clients that support dual and triple desktop displays. Eight R3082D Blade PCs fit in one 3U chassis (R4300) to provide phenomenal rack density. R3082D Blade PCs also include hardware based Mass Storage Lockout that prevents unauthorized storage devices from accessing the blade.
R3162D Blade PCs feature two independent remote access i5 processor motherboards, hard drives, memory, and network connections in a 3U form factor. One 3U chassis supports 16 independent PCs, saving rack space, reducing power consumption, and allowing network administrators to secure their computing assets as a private cloud in their datacenters.
The beauty of the R3162D Blade PC is that it utilizes PCoIP workstation access software, Citrix HDX and Microsoft RDP protocols. Administrators can select whichever platform that is most comfortable or familiar to them.
In summary, R Series Blade PCs are designed to address any of the following:
- Managers who are worried about losing customer sensitive information
- Workers who are stressed about work loss when their PC fails or needs service
- Employees who cannot collaborate easily because they can only access their data from their own cubicle’s PC
- Administrators who struggle with viruses and malware on PCs under end user control
- For sites where a dedicated/isolated CPU and memory are required for each user
- For sites where the ROI on VDI is not effective due to size of the deployment
R4300 Series chassis and modules provide all the connectivity and management features necessary to house front-removable Blade PCs with the highest levels of flexibility, scalability, and reliability.

M Series (High-performance PCoIP Engineering Workstations)
ClearCube offers two Engineering Workstation platforms that combine the benefits of PCoIP host-side rendering with powerful CPU/GPU processing platforms that are at the top of the performance charts.
The end result at the desktop for the CAD/CAM designer is a small footprint, secure, noiseless, high resolution zero client that supports 2560 x 1600 resolution at 60 frames per second. This zero client desktop device connects via IP over fiber or copper infrastructure to its dedicated 1:1 ClearCube M Series host processing platform that is rack mounted in a 1U space in the secure datacenter.
M1032W contains both the high speed CPU/GPU processing and remote extension technologies. . A single Xeon 10-core processor motherboard, with up to 256GB DDR4 RAM, and up to six hot swap drives is coupled to a range of NVIDIA Quadro GPU options, from the most powerful M6000 with 12GB video RAM to quad display supported M4000. From medical imaging to structural analysis applications, data integrity and precision is assured, without sacrificing performance.

Introduction to Sentral™ Software
Sentral™ Management Software Suite consists of software tools that enhance Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VMware VDI) and Centralized Desktop Infrastructure (PCoIP Blade PCs, zero and thin clients) environments by adding enhanced connection brokering and element management capabilities.
Two important components
Sentral Connection Broker maps connection routes from end points such as zero clients and thin clients through network switches to host resources such as Win-dow's and Linux-based physical Blade PCs or virtual sessions.
Sentral Element Manager provides administrators with multiple layers of manage-met of zero clients, thin clients, Blade PCs, and VDI hosts through a unified con-sole single-pane-of-glass view.
Brokering Desktop Connections
Sentral Connection Broker allows zero client users to log in from anywhere and be directed to specific centralized Blade PCs. Users can roam from station to station, or to different locations, and always be reconnected to their existing sessions. This means roaming users can leave a zero client, and then reconnect to their sessions from another zero client without having to restart applications or endure lengthy login processes. This capability is a highly touted benefit of using Virtual Machines (VMs) in VDI deployments, but Sentral makes it available with non-virtualized machines (i.e. centralized Blade PCs) as well.
For locations that do a lot of employee adds, moves, and changes, Sentral’s capability can save a huge amount of money. Rather than move computer equipment from place to place as the employees change locations, users simply broker their connection to their centralized blade PC from wherever their new office is located.
For rapid restoration of service in mission critical environments, Sentral provides the network administrator with the ability to automatically route the user to a different secondary source in the event of a primary source failure. With hot spares allocated, Sentral can be configured to switch a failed user to an active spare. In mission critical environments, such as command and control and financial services, this rapid restoration of service capability yields huge returns in completing critical missions and completing critical transactions.
Brokering support for Windows and Linux-based physical and virtual workstations
High availability Blade PC failover
Full USB redirection using thin clients for non-plug & play and plug & play devices
Device based brokering (kiosks)
Sentral Connection Broker
Broker connections for Windows and Linux physical and virtual environments - zero clients, thing clinets, blade PCs, engineering workstations, virtual sessions, and more.
