Aston Martin Redbull Racing brakes through the physically barrier’s of complexity with HPE and Citrix


Here is a great story about the innovation work that Aston Martin Redbull Racing have done with HPE and Citrix.

“By enabling our Aerodynamists to use a unified workspace to support the design processes, they now have the ability to work faster and produce more design iterations. This results in a more optimised design for each circuit and better results on track.”

Quote – Matt Sorrell, Principal Aerodynamicist, Aston Martin Redbull Racing

Im speaking at HPE Discover 18-20th June 2019, here is my insights, what I am looking forward to.

Billedresultat for hpe discover 2019

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.

HPE Power’s the intelligent Edge at Citrix Synergy


At Citrix Synergy May 2019, HPE will show how dedicated graphics are delivered real-time by their HPE Edgeline solutions

HPE have following solutions:

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
