Introducing the new HP Moonshot solution for Hosted Desktops.

Guest blog written by Nigel Church, HP Servers


If you are currently hosting desktops in your data center you are all too aware that keeping your end users happy is of paramount importance but can also be somewhat problematic.  There has been a subset of users that need graphics and multi-media who haven’t been well addressed by existing solutions. Until now.


We call it the HP ConvergedSystem 100 for Hosted Desktops and it features the new HP ProLiant m700 Server cartridge each with four AMD OPTERON™ X2150 APUs. Each Moonshot System delivers 180 hosted Citrix XenDesktops with a breakthrough independent, consistent PC experience with the business graphics and multimedia performance you expect, while delivering up to 44% improvement in TCO and up to 63% lower power requirements.


To learn more hear what OGL, a UK based managed service provider, has to say about the solution and visit the ConvergedSystem 100 for Hosted Desktops website for more details.  And if you are fortunate enough to be attending HP Discover in Barcelona, come to the show floor and see Moonshot handling hosted desktops in action.
