Engineers, architects, and animators need powerful computational and graphics performance on the desktop and in compute clusters, where workstations serve as nodes in distributed computations. However, such compute jobs can consume most or all of the resources on a workstation, leaving the user with an unusably slow workstation. The solution is to dispatch compute jobs to workstations only when the users are not using them. Parallels® Workstation Extreme, a virtualization solution from Parallels Inc., can turn a group of HP Workstations into a powerful distributed compute cluster while protecting the user’s ability to design, create, and visualize without even being aware that there are compute jobs running on the same system. This allows the organization to fully utilize all of the workstations’ high-performance multi-core Intel® Xeon® processors for their workstation users, as well as for large analysis, simulation, and rendering tasks. Parallels Workstation Extreme can provide many flexible solutions to users of HP Workstations: • Share computing resources intelligently • Fulfill the user’s requests efficiently by avoiding an unusably slow workstation • Enable the potential power and take full advantage of HP Workstations • Use a cost-effective way to dynamically provision additional computation power • Transform a group of workstations into a powerful distributed compute cluster
