Cirrascale Corporation®, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based and rackmount computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, today announced the launch of its second generation, high density scale-out, two-in-one high performance workstation rackmount offering, the RM1630DX. The latest system boasts two distinct workstation nodes in each 1U rackmount chassis, enabling support of up to 84 full-size GPU cards such as the AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote workstation graphics card, in a standard 42U rackmount cabinet.

“Cirrascale continues to work closely with its partners to further develop innovative methods of delivering high density GPU solutions that meet the needs of today’s high-end remote workers demanding multi-monitor workstation computing experiences,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “Our customers are adopting these unique and powerful remote workstation options fairly rapidly and have further cemented Cirrascale as the company that powers GPU-enabled, scale-out infrastructures.”

The Cirrascale RM1630DX is specifically tailored to meet the needs of customers looking to deploy the densest, and most powerful, remote workstation solutions. The RM1630DX consists of two distinct servers in a single 1U rackmount chassis supporting the latest graphics cards such as the AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote workstation graphics card. The AMD FirePro™ R5000 offers advanced features such as secure PCoIP® computing, GeometryBoost technology for improved model performance, the ability to remote up to four displays, as well as application optimizations and certifications for leading professional graphics applications.

“The AMD FirePro™ R5000 delivers uncompromised 3D graphics and performance, backed by rock-solid driver support, for remote workstation users that is on par with a local desktop experience,” said David Cummings, senior director and general manager, Professional Graphics at AMD. “The Cirrascale RM1630DX coupled with the AMD FirePro R5000 is the perfect platform for a high density, high performance rackmount solution that enables demanding 3D workstation applications to run seamlessly on PCoIP enabled zero-clients without sacrificing critical features such as certified drivers and multi-display HD resolutions.”

The RM1630DX adds an expanded chassis and dual sleds for maximum versatility and serviceability. Additionally, the RM1630DX extends the ability to support additional full-sized GPU cards and high-performance Teradici PCoIP Remote Workstation cards. Users simply connect to their high-performance workstation from either a secure PCoIP Zero Client or laptop running Teradici PCoIP software client. IT managers seeking to deliver a rich, uncompromised remote computing experience to Engineering, CAD/CAM, digital content creation professionals and more, can now utilize the density and reliability of the RM1630DX two-in-one 1U rackmount workstation to enable high performance PCoIP remote workstations for their power users.

“More than ever, customers are demanding more efficient, highly-utilized scale-out remote workstation technologies that can improve the overall economics of their data centers while providing their power users with the remote workstation performance they demand,” said Olivier Favre, director of product management, Teradici. “The RM1630DX gives IT managers the density they have been demanding when deploying high performance PCoIP remote workstations, and the flexibility to deploy them into any datacenter.”

The Cirrascale RM1630DX rackmount product lines are immediately available to order. The RM1630DX is scheduled to start shipping in early November 2014. Licensing opportunities are also immediately available to both customers and partners.
