Exceed mobile user expectations with the HP ConvergedSystem 100 for Hosted Desktops

Written by Karen Brown, HP Client Virtualization Marketing Manager


Until recently, the only way to support remote or mobile users was with application virtualization (like XenApp) or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).  And for many workers (task, productivity), these delivery methods allow them to do their jobs satisfactorily.


However, in addition to playing a big role in accelerating client virtualization adoption, mobility and consumerization have raised users’ expectations.  Not only do workers want the flexibility of working outside the 8-5 workday, they also want to utilize various devices, including tablets and smartphones; and be able to remotely view videos, business graphics, and other multi-media.  In order to satisfy these workers (which comprise a large part of the remote/mobile population), IT must deliver new capabilities for a secure, reliable and consistent experience while still keeping the cost per user at a reasonable level.

To fill this gap in the client virtualization range of users, HP has designed the ConvergedSystem 100 for Hosted Desktops integrated with Citrix XenDesktop.  This all-in-one compute, storage and networking system based on the award-winning HP Moonshot 1500 chassis and HP ProLiant m700 cartridge is the industry’s highest density hosted desktop (HDI) platform that delivers a reliable, media-rich experience outside the office, on any device.


Providing a dedicated, consistent PC experience with the business graphics and multimedia performance essential for many remote/mobile workers, the HP ConvergedSystem 100 delivers simplified deployment and up to 6x faster graphics frames per second versus traditional VDI.
