Fujitsu Boosts Graphics Virtualization from the Data Center
Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd
Fujitsu workstations are enabling industries such as automotive, aeronautics, energy, oil & gas and geopgraphic information systems (GIS) to fast-track innovation cycles and increase market velocity by delivering no-compromise, powerful workstation performance from the safety of the data center.
Introduced today at CeBIT, the new FUJITSU CELSIUS C740 rack workstation is flexible enough to be used as a one-to-one remote workstation, versatile enough to form the basis of a one-to-many virtualized workstation, and powerful enough to become a node in a high-end rendering cluster. Unique to the workstation market as a 1U rack workstation, the ‘Made in Germany’ CELSIUS C740 is designed to provide customers with a cost-effective solution to ensure productivity improvements.
Thomas Bretthauer, Head of Product Management, CELSIUS Workstations at Fujitsu says: “After the success of the predecessor CELSIUS C620 as a 1 to 1 remote access workstation, our development team had a challenge in balancing our customer demand for a dense 1 to 1 remote solution, as well as demand in the growing trend of graphics virtualization. Our internal design and engineering team at the factory in Germany have worked together to design a solution which is not only dense enough to be a perfect remote workstation, but also expandable enough to offer graphics virtualization to our largest customers who need it.”
Walter Mundt-Blum, Vice President Enterprise Sales EMEAI at NVIDIA comments: “NVIDIA graphics virtualization enables graphics intensive users such as designers or creative artists to work anywhere, anytime and improves enterprise productivity and collaboration. The new CELSIUS C740 rack workstation with NVIDIA GRID is another step of offering true graphics from the data center in a great form factor.”
Aimee Catalano, Vice President of Alliance Marketing at Citrix says: "At Citrix, we’ve succeeded in driving tremendous advances in delivering a fast, interactive high-definition 3D graphics virtualization experience in collaboration with partners like NVIDIA, building on joint innovation that began more than six years ago. The FUJITSU CELSIUS C740 offers a compelling combination of Citrix XenServer, HDX 3D Pro and NVIDIA GRID graphics to provide engineers, designers and other professionals with secure access to high definition 3D graphics and a powerful workstation experience, whether they work in the field or in remote offices around the world."
Fujitsu’s CELSIUS Family of Reliable, Expandable and Performant Workstations
Fujitsu is one of the top four global workstation vendors. The new CELSIUS C740 extends Fujitsu’s comprehensive portfolio of CELSIUS workstation solutions, building on two decades of global expertise in blending Japanese quality with ‘Made in Germany’ precision engineering to guarantee reliability, expandability and performance. The CELSIUS range offers a sophisticated combination of the newest available processor and graphics system performance to increase application efficiency, starting with the innovative and highly secure CELSIUS H730 mobile workstation with its PalmSecure authentication technology, and topping out with high-end workstations for the desktop and data center to meet a wide variety of needs, including high performance computing (HPC).
Pricing and availability
Pricing and availability of the FUJITSU CELSIUS C740 workstation varies according to specification and region and will generally be available from June 2015 via Fujitsu direct sales and distribution partners.
