SYN257: The sky’s the limit with Moonshot! Insider information on implementing XenDesktop on HP’s revolutionary platform

In 2013, HP began a journey to revolutionize the cloud, big data, social and mobility landscape with a new class of servers: Project Moonshot. The game has now changed with a focus on hosted desktop infrastructure (HDI), made possible with AMD x86 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU)-based cartridges. These cartridges provide four systems with CPU, GPU, RAM and SSD in a system on a chip (SOC) architecture. In this session you will learn tips, tricks and best practices for implementing Citrix XenDesktop HDX 3D Pro on HP Moonshot from key experts behind this disruptive new technology.

Additional topics to be covered include:
• Moonshot 1500 chassis, interconnect modules and ProLiant m700 Kyoto cartridge overview: 180 desktops in a 4.3U configuration!
• Moonshot HDI integration with Citrix XenDesktop HDX 3D Pro using OpenGL 4.1 and DirectX 11
• User experience demonstration and performance results using common Login VSI workloads and leading monitoring solutions
