HP announced its most powerful thin client solution, the HP t820 Flexible Series Thin Client, to help businesses thrive with outstanding performance, security and manageability.
HP also announced support for new NVIDIA GRID cards for the HP WS460c Generation 8 (Gen8) Graphics Server Blade. Aimed at reducing price per user and boosting performance for graphics in virtualized environments, the HP WS460c—combined with the HP Multi-GPU Carrier, a graphics adapter card enabling up to eight users per blade—delivers the most comprehensive blade server graphics portfolio.
“There is new and growing demand in today’s market for quad-core processing and multimedia graphics on thin clients,” said Kobi Elbaz, vice president, Commercial Personal Systems, Printing and Personal Systems Group, HP EMEA. “With the HP t820, we’ve delivered a more advanced thin client solution to give companies the speed and performance required for their most demanding applications.”
The HP t820 Flexible Series Thin Client offers users powerful performance and graphics combined with enterprise-level security, ensuring an organization’s sensitive data is secured on the server even if its devices are compromised, lost or stolen.
The HP t820 benefits organizations in industries—such as financial trading, architecture, engineering, and military or government agencies—that require high-performance computing to run specialty programs.
Enhanced features on the HP t820 includes a powerful processing with Intel® Core™ i5 or Intel Pentium®. The HP t820 is eight times faster than the HP t610 Flexible Thin Client and can control large amounts of data and multiple applications at once, allowing employees to increase productivity by viewing information on more than one monitor.
HP updated the HP WS460c Gen8 Graphics Server Blade with new NVIDIA GRID graphics cards aimed at virtualized environments. As the industry’s first bladed technology that enables multiple virtualized graphics users per blade, the HP WS460c Gen8 server with NVIDIA GRID or Multi-GPU Carrier lowers the cost per user while delivering levels of graphics performance previously unavailable for desktop virtualization users. The new NVIDIA GRID K1 and K2 GPU adapters also enable multiple media-rich PC or high-end graphics users per blade by providing graphics capability to each virtual machine.
