ClearCube Announces PCoIP Blade PCs with Intel Q77 Express chipsets for VDI Power Users

ClearCube Technology will release a high density, high performance PC blade workstation designed for power users in centralization and VDI virtualization projects.

A6106D PC blade provide IT organizations with the ability to address the needs of power users in VDI environments by utilizing the robust features of 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processors, Intel® Q77 Express chipsets, DDR3-1600 memory, PCI-Express® graphics, and on-board dual Ethernet connections .

ClearCube® A6106D PC blades are specially designed with embedded PCoIP™ and GPU adapters that host IP connections from remote desktop zero client end point devices. Dual and Quad PCoIP™ Host Cards with 1GB GPUs transparently redirect USB from the desktop back to the PC blade. In addition, a range of 3D GPU configuration options include powerful dual display NVIDIA Quadro 4000 or Quadro 2000 GPU adapters integrated within A6106D.

“The power efficiencies offered by 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors allow ClearCube Technology to achieve the industry’s highest rack density of 10 PC Blades in 6U of rack space while delivering outstanding CPU performance to VDI users over distance,” said Jim Zakzeski, VP, Business Development and Marketing, ClearCube Technology .

“Achieving higher density while lowering the overall power consumption further strengthens our value proposition of green computing,” said Raj Mellacheruvu, VP, Engineering, ClearCube Technology.

ClearCube architecture centralizes the processors so that blade-cooling fans and high-volume chassis fans provide ample cooling in the datacenter, while fan-less, low power, zero clients at the desktops eliminate heat, power consumption, and fan noise near the users. By centralizing the power users’ workstations, IT organizations achieve VDI benefits with high availability, ease of management, and power efficiencies in a dense data center friendly solution.

A6106D PC Blades seamlessly integrate into VMware virtual desktop environments and the connection between the blades and zero clients are brokered by VMware View to deliver a high-end PC experience over an IP network. A6106D provides Dual and Quad monitor PCoIP™ support from the PC blade to the zero clients at the desktop with simultaneous full screen, full motion video at high resolutions.

For non-VDI implementations, ClearCube’s Sentral Management software gives IT administrators easy and total control of their entire deployment of centralized infrastructure – from PC blades to virtual desktops, locally or remotely, and provides server-level availability (99.9% uptime) for end user computing.

A6106D PC Blades will ship August 2012.
