THE NEXT GENERATION OF WORKSTATION GRAPHICS Select language:
REMOTE WORKSTATIONS

A unique option for Design and Engineering professionals working with small to medium sized models and datasets is the AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics card. Unlike AMD FirePro™ S-Series server cards, the R5000 features an integrated PCoIP host processor from Teradici that enables the transmission and compression of pixels over the Internet, and ability to access desktops and information remotely.



Further, the AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics card is the only single PCIe® slot, PCoIP enabled solution certified for compatibility and performance by leading Design and Engineering software vendors, including:


REMOTE WORKSTATIONS FOR DESIGN AND ENGINEERING

Allows IT to centralize hardware in the data center for ease of management
Maximizes available workspace and helps keeps the work environment cooler and quieter
Users can access their data and projects remotely from an enabled device
Co-workers can view the same workstation from different locations without data duplication
Keeps data safe and secure in the data center, only pixels are transmitted
Delivers performance experience on par with a physical system, including full 3D graphics
VMware support to created multiple virtualized machines in one rack workstation to maximize density


DELIVERING WORKSTATION EXPERIENCES OVER THE CORPORATE NETWORK

The AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics card features a TERA2 PCoIP host processor integrated in the card. This PCoIP technology features host rendering, delivering pixels-only. These pixels are encoded specifically for the type of media being displayed and are optimally transmitted over standard IP networks. The workstation images are delivered typically to a small, secure PCoIP zero client. The PCoIP zero client can be placed in any office or remote location, enabling workstation access virtually anywhere. Alternatively, a desktop or laptop with a Teradici PCoIP software client installed can also receive PCoIP traffic, providing flexible access to information at home or on-the-go.

CENTRALLY MANAGED FROM THE DATA CENTER

Each AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics card can only be assigned to one user. However, multiple R5000s can be deployed in a single rack workstation to support multiple users. The AMD FirePro™ R5000 supports VMware ESXi 5.5 to help IT create and support multiple virtual machines. If your business prefers to deploy one rack workstation per user, a hypervisor is not required.

As far as end user requirements, each employee needs:
A display (up to four remote displays are supported), mouse and keyboard
A compatible Zero Client that is PCoIP enabled and supports one to four remote displays
Corporate network connection
A laptop or desktop with the Teradici PCoIP software client installed for remote access on the go

Because the graphics card sits in the data center and is easier to manage, the AMD FirePro™ R5000 also enables IT to clone a remote user’s displays in the data center when troubleshooting issues. This capability is unique to the R5000, allowing IT to locally clone up to two displays, via two Mini DisplayPort outputs, and still remote up to four displays per users.

Our partners at BOXX have an elegant turnkey solution built around 8 AMD FirePro™ R5000 GPUs for those looking for a simple out-of-box solution. Click here for more details about this very unique and capable product.
DEPLOYED AT INDIVIDUAL USERS DESKS

The AMD R5000 can actually be deployed in two ways, centrally in the data center or in a desktop workstation at each user’s desk. If moving hardware to a central location is not a priority at this time, or your company has groups of users sitting in one location, the AMD FirePro™ R5000 can be installed in a desktop workstation under the user’s desk. These users still benefit from the ability to remotely access their system and information remotely from a PCoIP enabled device.

SUPPORTING POWER USERS

The AMD FirePro™ R5000 remote graphics card is ideal for mid-range Design and Engineering professionals who work with small to medium datasets and models. If you have users working with large data sets and models, the AMD FirePro™ W7000 can be paired with a stand-alone PCoIP host processor card and deployed in a rack workstation or in a desktop at the user’s desk. This is a dual-card solution.


WHEN TO CONSIDER A DUAL-CARD SOLUTION

Have a power user who needs more graphics performance than the R5000
Rack workstation density is not a high priority
No need for cloning remote displays locally
Can accommodate external cabling between the graphics card and the PCoIP host card

1AMD Eyefinity™ technology can support multiple displays using a single enabled AMD FirePro™ professional graphics card; the number of supported displays varies by card model. Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, or Linux® is required in order to support more than 2 displays. Depending on the card model, native DisplayPort™ connectors and/or certified DisplayPort™ active or passive adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your card’s DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s) may be required.
