Hi All, I am proud to share that I will be speaking at this yearly Hewlett Packaged Enterprise (HPE Discover) which takes place 18-20th June 2019 in Las Vegas, United States. I have been part of HPE independent influencer program the last couple of years and have been having the pleasure to come to HPE Discover and cover this. I have primary been at HPE Discover in Europe the last couple of years. Last I was at HPE Discover in Las Vegas was 10 years ago, so its very special to be back and experience one of my favorite conferences in the year and also proud to share that I am speaking there.
Trader Workstation -HPE Moonshot & CITRIX are bringing Mobility and Security to Traders & Developers in Financial Services without compromising on End User Experience.
Engineering Workstation – HPE Edgeline & CITRIX Cloud are bringing secure collaboration between engineering teams by enhancing systems and application performance and enable IOT & Industry 4.0 transition.
Bare metal VDI- Extending our success in POWER USERS to knowledge workers so that VDI does not need to be the lowest common denominator in terms of end user experience.
I have helped HPE design & build the Engineering Workstation. Last year at HPE Discover in Europe, November 2018, the solution of the Engineering Workstation powered by Citrix Cloud solution was announced how customers can now use dedicated graphics with either Intel or adding AMD WX4100 GPU or now here in May 2019 add a NVIDIA P1000 GPU. The solutions are incredible how you can get raw dedicated and garanteed performance without any performance overhead of a hypervisor or an operating system that see’s a virtual system. Bare metal is same UX as a workstation, basically HPE is taking the physically workstation at the desk to the edge and making it intelligent with a high user density. HPE is the only vendor who can deliver 4 bare metal VDIs in 1U, which makes them a market leader for Baremetal VDI use cases at the Edge. Customers can as well use Citrix Virtual Apps (RDSH) and increase density, which is popular in the financial industry.
Follow on social media how HPE and Citrix is taking innovation at the edge. #HPECitrix #CitrixSynergy
Its time to plan updating your NVIDIA TESLA M6, M10, M60, P4, P6, P40, P100, V100, T4, RTX6000, RTX8000 with NVIDIA vGPU software 8.0
NVIDIA have released new drivers for NVIDIA vGPU 8.0 for April 2019
NVIDIA vGPU 8.0 is a MAJOR release with many new software features + support for the new RTX6000 and RTX8000 GPUs, which are NVIDIA flagship for Real Time Raytracing. The great thing is now they have vGPU capabilities, which is a BIG NEWS.
I have in this article also included which Public Cloud instance is available with NVIDIA GPUs and which license is BYO or provided by the public cloud provider such as Azure, AWS, GCP.
Microsoft Windows Server 2019 & Windows 10 1809 is supported with this release.
Another great thing is that now “infrastructure components for Citrix” can be installed on Microsoft Windows ServerCore, which means a minimum OS and only install what is required, no GUI just raw performance, something which a lot of service providers, customers are going to like. This is important for scalability and automation and having best TCO running a Citrix infrastructure. Citrix director & delivery controller now works and is supported on ServerCore (WS2012r2/WS2016/WS2019).
Citrix raises the bar of for user experience and new product release of following technologies:
Virtual Delivery Agents 1903 for ServerOS and ClientOS
Virtual Delivery Agents 1903 for Desktop OS Core Services
