HP is releasing new software solutions for remote collaboration on or within cloud-based high-performance workloads. The tech giant is also introducing a dedicated data science software stack for Linux workflows.
HP wants to enable users to remotely access the software needed for intensive graphics or high computing power workloads. For this purpose, it is deploying Teradici CAS, a tool for securely accessing cloud environments and virtual machines. In turn, the existing ZCentral Remote Boost solution provides access to the performance of local workstations. This allows users to access their necessary powerful software from any location, no matter what device they are using, be it PCs, thin clients, Chromebooks or tablets.
The combined software solution is offered as a cloud-based subscription for 210 euros ($240) per year. It should become available by the end of this year.
Collaboration with Nvidia
HP will also partner with Nvidia to create more collaboration solutions and design services for creatives. For this, the Z workstations are to be combined with the HP Teradici CAS remote software and Nvidia Omniverse Enterprise. This should produce a platform that makes real-time simultaneous collaboration and near-real simulation a reality for designers.
HP says such a platform removes the necessity of being present in one location, thus allowing designers to collaborate more easily for 3D workflows and environments. Designers should be able to collaborate in real-time from multiple locations worldwide on designs based on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine or Revit or Rhino 3D software. HP’s support includes the use of endpoints and applications based on multiple operating systems. Nvidia is bringing in multi-application support through Omniverse.
Designers now receive a three-month free trial of the Nvidia Omniverse Enterprise solution with the purchase of an HP Z workstation. This trial includes two Creator licenses, four Nucleus licenses and ten Reviewer licenses. They also receive a three-month trial of the HP Teradici CAS software.
WSL 2 software for data scientists
Furthermore, HP is expanding its HP Z workstation solutions for data science. The tech giant recently launched a dedicated software stack for Linux combined with Nvidia GPUs. With the HP Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) software and Nvidia GPUs, data scientists can build a development environment for accelerating their workflows. In addition, said environment provides the necessary security and management capabilities.
The software focuses primarily on Linux Ubuntu environments for Windows, allowing data scientists to directly start an Ubuntu environment without leaving their original OS. Rebooting or running virtual machines is unnecessary. Moreover, the Nvidia GPU’s allow the running of Ubuntu workflows directly on Windows devices. WSL 2 also provides all the performance, file system access, system compatibility and GPU acceleration needed to perform data-intensive work, such as training AI models and applying machine learning.
