Less really can be more when it comes to desktop virtualization. 180 PC-on-a-Chip desktops—minus the hypervisor—with Citrix XenDesktop, HP Moonshot, and AMD. Part 1

Last week at HP Discover in Barcelona, Spain, HP unveiled a revolutionary new member of the Moonshot platform called the Converged System 100 for Hosted Desktops designed exclusively with AMD for Citrix XenDesktop. This new architecture is unlike anything else the industry and Citrix was there side-by-side on the show floor unveiling this new jointly designed platform to customers and partners. The interest from attendees was unbelievable and the simplicity of this new platform with XenDesktop and Provisioning Services made attendees really understand that desktop virtualization can be made simpler with an architecture like this. Let’s take a look at the hardware and dive deeper into this new and exciting game changing architecture.

Chassis

The Moonshot 1500 platform is a 4.3U chassis that has an impressive array of compute, graphics, storage, and network. This new Proliant M700 Server cartridge for HDI, or Hosted Desktop Infrastructure, was designed for those key knowledge workers that need direct unfiltered access to hardware that has been traditionally managed by a hypervisor in the VDI world.  By providing this level of hardware access users can be assured that they will not have to share any hardware resources with anyone else that could potentially impact others in a traditional VDI architecture.  With this new architecture users now have access to their own dedicated processors, graphics, storage, and networking which increases the user experience and ultimately productivity.
