In the Data Center
The vPC allows businesses to scale up according to their needs and this is where its Remote PC functionalities shine. It introduces a data center scenario where administrators can mount the chassis on an industry-standard 2-post rack, or back-to-back on a 4-post rack. Both offer high capacity,
simple assembly, exceptional airflow and easy access to the equipment.
The end user connects to the remote vPC by means of a Thin Client or Zero Client.
The combination of desktop and datacenter allows researchers and implementers to test applications and solutions desk-side and transfer it to the datacenter for a seamless deployment. It also gives IT administrators the ease of supporting uniform base-images across their desktop and datacenter environments, hence allowing easier management of their infrastructure.
a. Single Compute Configuration
The single compute configuration incorporates an Intel® B365 chipset based Micro-ATX motherboard with support for the latest 8th/9th Gen Intel® Coffee Lake (Celeron, or Core™ i3, i5, i7 & i9) processors. Upgrading to a high-performance configuration provides users with a Z390 chipset capable of supporting overclocked processor and memory along with dual GPUs. This configuration can provide a true high-end experience by effortlessly handling demanding tasks such as processing algorithms, animation and video editing. It is also capable of running intensive CAD/CAM engineering software, AI, Deep Learning and dataset processing. Also available are options for AMD Ryzen processors up to Ryzen 7 2700x
b. Dual Compute Configuration
The dual compute configuration is comprised of two Mini-ITX motherboards equipped with one 8th/9th Gen Intel® Coffee Lake (Celeron, or Core™ i3, i5, i7 & i9) processor in each motherboard. User systems run off the same power which gives administrators a vPC boasting a minimalistic design, smaller footprint and minimized power consumption capability. Support for 32GB DDR4 Memory, upgradeable to 64GB on 9th generation Intel® Core™ processors, increases the amount and memory bus of the system for memory-intensive workloads. Harnessing the full potential of 8th/9th Intel® Core™ processors, the configuration further offers functional reliability and dynamic performance. Users receive full frame-rate rendering efficiencies in advanced visual effects, engineering, manufacturing, construction, motion picture and architectural projects. Integrated support for Intel® Optane™ memory and storage technology provides the vPC additional speed benefits and facilitates low latency responsiveness on the accelerated hard disk drives. All these reduce CPU usage and facilitate dynamic throughput performance which deliver the best network experience to the user.
The vPC goes beyond facilitating full desktop performance by increasing asset and data security and overall manageability. It comes with ClearCube EPMTM (EndPoint Manager) Software for added security and Windows Image Management, allowing administrators to utilize it as a regular workstation on user desks without undertaking complex layering, adjustments, verification, and management processes. Organizations not prepared to use it as a Remote PC in the datacenter on account of budgetary reasons benefit from this, which would otherwise involve connecting the system to a Thin or Zero Client. They may reconsider this option upon expansion or structural changes, and this is where the vPC offers businesses total control of how they choose to manage their infrastructure.
