Rack Workstations
High performance and secure workstations

Rack Workstation

Amulet Hotkey rack workstations are based on the enterprise class rack workstations combined with professional GPUs from NVIDIA and AMD as well as a KVM Extender remote workstation card. The result is a remote workstation that users can access locally, from any meeting room, from home, across the country or continent-to-continent.

CoreStation Rack Workstation Key Features and Benefits
  • Rack vs Blade Workstation?

    Centralizing workstations enable benefits such as improved security, performance, availability and enhanced team productivity and collaboration. Amulet Hotkey CoreStation solutions include options for dedicated blade and rack workstations to meet different user and workload requirements.

    Rack Workstation Blade Workstation
    • Requires more rack space.
    • 1U per CoreStation WR3930 single-socket workstation.
    • 2U per CoreStation WR7920 dual-socket workstation.
    • Supports extreme workstation GPUs such as NVIDIA Quadro RTX or GV100 and AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100.
    • Multi-GPU options including single-width and dual-width GPUs.
    • Smaller data center footprint.
    • As low as 0.5U per CoreStation WFC640 dual-socket workstation.
    • As low as 0.625U per CoreStation WM640 dual-socket workstation.
    • Support high-end mobile workstation GPUs such as NVIDIA Quadro P5000 and AMD FirePro S7100X.
    • Multi-GPU options for WFC640 .
    • More efficient as blade enclosure consolidates networking, storage, management and power supplies.
  • Which KVM Extender Host or PCIe Card?

    Amulet Hotkey provide KVM Extender Host and PCIe card options that provide hardware remote display protocol encoding for zero workstation CPU loading and improved performance compared to software-based encoders. Each option provides the same capability such as quad display and network connection options.

    DXP4 PCIe Card DXH4 PCIe Card DXR-H4/DXT-H4 Hosts
    • Full-height, half-length, PCIe card.
    • Fits in workstation.
    • 2-in-1 card with GPU and KVM Extender to conserve PCIe slots.
    • Save larger PCIe slots for additional GPUs or other cards.
    • Supports select mobile workstation GPU options.
    • Provide remote access for systems with only one PCIe slot available including internal-only PCIe slots.
    • Low profile to fit in small PCIe slots.
    • Fits in workstation.
    • Requires one PCIe slot for the DXH4 and one or more for slots for GPU(s)
    • Avoid consuming larger PCIe slots for KVM Extender card.
    • Supports any GPU with digital video outputs.
    • External rackmount or desktop host.
    • Requires additional space / rack units.
    • Does not consume any workstation PCIe slots.
    • Save all workstation PCIe slots for GPUs or other cards.
    • Supports any GPU with digital video outputs.
    • Provide remote access for laptops, or when no PCIe slots are available.
    • Host workstation isolation for additional security.
  • True workstation power and performance

    Powerful and Dedicated Processors

    With support for the latest Intel Xeon E-2100 or 8th Generation Intel Core processors, the CoreStation WR3930 offers up to 6 high-speed cores and up to 64GB of RAM to handle tough design workloads.

    With support for up to two Intel® Xeon™ Scalable processors, the CoreStation WR7920 offers up to 56 processing cores, up to 3TB of RAM and local or converged storage to handle your tough workloads and large datasets.

    Supports One or Multiple Professional GPUs
    Select one or more professional GPUs, such as AMD Radeon Pro or NVIDIA Quadro with CUDA or OpenCL, to boost display performance and accelerate compute, rendering, simulation, modelling, analytics or deep learning workloads.

    Each rack workstation uses hardware-based remote display protocol acceleration to ensure zero workstation CPU loading and to deliver an exceptional experience to meet the needs of your demanding professionals.

    Hardware Remote Display Protocol Acceleration
    Each CoreStation workstation can take advantage of hardware-based remote display protocol acceleration to ensure zero workstation CPU loading and rapid multi-screen encoding to deliver an exceptional experience to meet the needs of your demanding professionals.

  • Dedicated workstation vs Virtualized Workstation?

    Amulet Hotkey CoreStation rack workstations provide the flexibility to implement dedicated or virtualized workstations. IT teams can leverage CoreStation workstations to deliver an agile and scalable architecture that delivers the right level of performance and capability to each user.

    Dedicated Rack Workstation Virtual Rack Workstation
    • One user per rack workstation
    • Fits demanding and mission critical applications that require multiple GPUs and dedicated compute capacity.
    • Hardware remote display protocol encoding for zero workstation CPU loading and improved performance compared to software-based or H.264-based encoders.
    • Fits where organization security policies require a physically separate network for the remote display protocol.
    • High-availability and fail-over options
    • Multiple users per rack workstation
    • Fits where applications can run on shared physical CPU, GPU, and memory resources including occasional or moderate workstation usage.
    • Fits where software-based or H.264 hardware remote display encoding meets user experience requirements. Note some limitations using H.264-based encoding for wire-frame and color accurate imaging etc.
    • Note that single-threaded workstation applications can limit the number of virtual workstations per server.
    • Advanced features such as VM migration and VM auto-restart for high-availability.
    • Improved agility to adapt to changing organization and workload requirements.
  • Ultra-High Security

    Send display pixels not user/application data
    Protect corporate or government information by moving workstations into a data center. The DXH4 or DXP4 KVM Extender card keeps sensitive information within the data center and only sends encrypted display pixels to client endpoints.

    Network Isolation for Remote Display Protocol
    Amulet Hotkey KVM Extender and Remote Workstation Cards have a dedicated network interface for PCoIP remote display protocol traffic only. The PCoIP network traffic interface cannot be accessed from the host workstation and provides an additional layer of security by separating workstation network traffic and PCoIP network traffic.

    Secure zero client endpoints including certified models
    When using Amulet Hotkey zero clients, the connection can be secured with advanced security algorithms such as 256-bit AES and NSA Suite B cryptography – used by governments to protect classified information. Amulet Hotkey DXZ clients include models that are the only zero clients certified as secure by the UK Government and NATO. Read more on CPA Certification.

  • Quad and octal display configuration options

    Dual and quad display options
    The CoreStation WR3930 and CoreStation WR7920 support up to quad display configurations up to 1920×1200 resolution, or dual display up to 2560×1600 resolution using a DXH4 card, DXP4 card, DXR-H4 host or DXT-H4 host.

    Octal display and quad high-resolution display options
    Each CoreStation WR3930 workstation can support octal display configurations up to 1920×1200 or quad displays up to 2560×1600 without compromising performance or image quality when using two DXP4 cards, DXR-H4 hosts or DXT-H4 hosts.
