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 than blades. Dual CPU workstation in 2U.
    • Fit up to 21 CoreStation WR7920 workstations in a standard 42U rack.
    • Support for extreme workstation GPUs (ie NVIDIA Quadro V100 and AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100).
    • Additional GPU options including single-slot and dual-slot GPUs.
    • Smaller data center footprint. Dual GPU workstation in ~ 0.6U.
    • Fit up to 64 CoreStation VM640 workstations in a standard 42U rack.
    • Support high-end mobile workstation GPUs (ie NVIDIA Quadro P5000 and AMD S7100X).
    • Blade enclosures consolidate networking, storage, management and redundant power supplies.
  • Which KVM Extender card – DXH4 or DXP4?

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

    DXP4 DXH4
    • Full-height, half-length, PCIe card
    • 2-in-1 card with GPU and KVM Extender to conserve PCIe slots or fit into systems with only a single PCIe slot available.
    • Supports select mobile workstation GPU options.
      Save larger PCIe slots for additional GPUs or other cards such as networking, storage and NVMe drives.
    • Option for installing the DXP4 card in an internal-only PCIe slot.
    • Low profile to fit in small PCIe slots
    • Requires one PCIe slot for the DXH4 KVM Extender card and  one or more for slots for the GPU(s)
    • Supports any GPU with digital video outputs which connect to the DXH4 via miniDisplayPort cables/adapters.
  • True workstation power and performance

    Powerful Single or Dual CPUs

    With support for the latest dual Intel® Xeon™ Scalable processors, the CoreStation blade workstations such as the CoreStation WR7920 offer up to 56 processing cores per CPU, 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.

  • 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 rack.
    • 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.

    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 are the only zero clients that are 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 WR7920 supports up to quad display configurations up to 1920×1200 resolution, or dual display up to 2560×1600 resolution using a DXH4 or DXP4 card.

    Octal display and quad high-resolution display options

    When using two DXH4 or DXP4 cards, each WR7920 workstation can support octal display configurations up to 1920×1200 or quad displays up to 2560×1600 without compromising performance or image quality.
