Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Thomas Poppelgaard to Speak at Graphics Virtualization Event in Texas - April 2014

Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Thomas Poppelgaard to Speak at Graphics Virtualization Event in Texas - April 2014

Austin, TX (PRWEB)

Whitehat Virtual Technologies (Austin, TX), a leader of virtualization and GPU integration in Texas announces The Power of Graphics and Virtualization Roadshow. Whitehat joins NVIDIA, Citrix, and Dell for a virtualization conference in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston, Texas scheduled for the week of April 21-25. One of the world’s leading GPU virtualization experts, Thomas Poppelgaard, will speak at the combined event. The schedule is as follows:

  •     April 21st | Austin, TX
  •     April 22nd | San Antonio, TX
  •     April 23rd | Dallas, TX
  •     April 25th | Houston, TX

NVIDIA GRID hardware allows companies to utilize their PC workstations, Windows-based or Apple, as a computer terminal creating virtualized desktops and applications. NVIDIA GRID offloads graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in a virtualized environment. The result is high-end graphics capabilities for individual or multiple users, each with multiple simultaneous applications. In a virtual environment utilizing NVIDIA GRID hardware, all users are tied in to a common company GPU, with no resultant compromise in the graphics speed or quality.

“Delivering acceptable performance for 3D and other heavy graphics applications has always been a challenge in a Citrix environment. After 5 years of joint development between NVIDIA and Citrix, and using the worldwide collaborative design effort for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner as the driving need, the NVIDA GRID vGPU solution resulted. Since Whitehat Virtual’s core competence is in Citrix application and virtual desktop delivery, it is a natural fit for our three companies to work together for customers that have these application challenges, and we are excited to be a part of it,” states Brad Truman- Vice President of Sales, Whitehat Virtual Technologies.

NVIDIA K1 and K2 Grid cards deliver the most-demanding graphics applications such as AutoCAD and SolidWorks without compromise, allowing up to 30 individual users to run high-end graphics applications simultaneously.

“Whitehat can incorporate NVIDIA K1 and K2 GRID cards into our customer solutions and deliver the most graphically demanding workloads,” contributing to a virtualization environment “that delivers an exceptional, measurable end-user experience. Ultimately, this really rounds out the levels and types of services around virtualization we are able to offer small businesses and enterprises alike,” explains Whitehat.

Worker productivity is positively correlated with speed performance. The NVIDIA solution ultimately leads to IT support cost savings, supporting virtual, as well as physical and mobile platforms. This frees employee’s time and provides greater worker flexibility, enabling end-users to use their own PC or Mac for high-end graphics in a virtual environment using NVIDIA GRID cards, accessing applications from the cloud or any other location. Security, manageability, and flexibility are enhanced, while also allowing Whitehat clients to access Citrix, Microsoft and VMware NVIDIA GRID-enabled software.

As a growing number of employees bring their own devices to the workplace, flexibility and mobility, along with a continuous high performance level for each individual user, are a necessity. With NVIDIA GRID graphics hardware, as many as 30 users can share a single GPU.

Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Graphics Virtualization Roadshow in Four Major Texas Cities

Posted by Jessica Adams on Jun 30, 2016 11:03:08 AM

Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Graphics Virtualization Roadshow in Four Major Texas Cities

 Austin, TX (PRWEB)

Application and desktop virtualization specialist, Whitehat Virtual Technologies (Austin, TX), recently announced a four- city roadshow to be offered in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, & Houston during the week of April 21st, 2014. Each session will be held from 8:00AM until noon, and will feature presentations by Thomas Poppelgaard, as well as extensive live demonstrations over the cloud and with local equipment. There will be plenty of opportunity to get hands-on access to the demonstration equipment for personal evaluation. 

Poppelgaard is a technology evangelist and subject matter expert in remote graphics and helping companies virtualize 2D/3D graphics in the cloud for customers around the world. He specializes in how CAD/CAE/CAM/entertainment/media applications can be virtualized with Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft SBC/VDI technologies with NVIDIA and AMD offerings, and has worked extensively with Citrix HDX 3D Pro since 2008. In 2011, he was one of the organizers of a successful event where vendors including Citrix, HP, Autodesk and NVIDIA were gathered to demonstrate HDX 3D Pro to a wider audience, and in 2013, he spoke at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference and on a Webinar at Citrix HQ for global markets.

The roadshow sessions will focus on improving graphics application performance for designers, power users, and knowledge workers. Being remote from the workstation or the applications is no longer an issue, and the Whitehat cloud demonstration will illustrate that. The sessions will also address the return on investment (ROI) aspects of the solution, and show how the cost per user can be brought down dramatically through NVIDIA’s new vGPU sharing capability without sacrificing local or remote performance.

"Virtualizing complex graphic applications has been a major challenge for Citrix since the technologies inception. With Citrix HDX and NVIDIA’s vGPU technology this can be done effectively,” said Val King, CEO of Whitehat Virtual Technologies. “This technology enables quality graphics to all users as well as high-end 3D graphics for professional users who depend on rich graphics capabilities to do their job. Server based computing can now handle a much wider array of end users, extending the opportunity for superior performance to any device, anywhere.”

Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Cloud Services - Customized Private and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Designed for Maximum Efficiency

Whitehat Virtual Technologies Announces Cloud Services - Customized Private and Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Designed for Maximum Efficiency

Texas-based Whitehat Virtual Technologies announces customized private and hybrid cloud infrastructure services, bringing enterprise-level operations with maximum efficiency to businesses of all sizes. Whitehat’s cloud services provide e-mail access through hosted Microsoft Exchange, full hosted Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and cost-effective disaster recovery through cloud supplementary storage.

Austin, TX (PRWEB)

White Virtual Technologies announces a full suite of customizable cloud infrastructure services for medium and enterprise-level companies.

These services include:

  •     CloudMail: e-Mail access through hosted Microsoft Exchange
  •     CloudDesktop: Full hosted Desktop as a Service (DaaS)
  •     CloudRecovery: Cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) through cloud storage
  •     CloudOffice: A combination of the three services above
  •     CloudServer: General server hosting

Cloud infrastructure makes all resources available and shareable to the entire company from any device. Employees can work anywhere and at any time, allowing for smooth continuance of operations even during times of disruption at the workplace or workplace accessibility. "Whitehat cloud is a fully integrated enterprise cloud that allows you to virtualize business-critical applications and desktops seamlessly- with high service levels, secure access and less complexity. Every business is unique; therefore when it comes to building your cloud infrastructure, Whitehat ensures that it is built to meet the exact requirements of your business, not only today, but the scalability of our cloud solution will meet your demands far into the future." - Goggi Reddy, VP-Operations Whitehat Virtual Technologies.

Private clouds enhance performance and security, provide a universal format for updates, increase ROI, and maximize the efficiency of infrastructure hardware so that no infrastructure capacity is wasted. Hybrid clouds combine the features of private and public clouds at a lower cost and are appropriate for less-sensitive data. Companies may structure their cloud through Whitehat as private, hybrid, or a combination of both, internally sharing infrastructure resources within their company.

Efficiency benefits of cloud-based infrastructure through Whitehat:

  •     Task Automation
  •     Ease of adding new PCs to the network
  •     CloudDesktop structure makes applications, content, and data available anytime, anywhere,    and on any device
  •     Maximizes use of available infrastructure capacity
  •     Flexible, scalable model allowing for up- or down-scaling
  •     Pay-as-you-go, no long-term contract
  •     Budgetable monthly expense

Cost-efficiency is improved with cloud infrastructure, automation many tasks that might otherwise require hours of IT labor costs, freeing technicians for activities more directly involved in the company's bottom line. Because infrastructure is hosted off-site, IT staff can direct their energies to value-added tasks, such as planning and development rather than losing time tinkering with minor hardware or system glitches. This may allow for reduction in IT technical personnel.

Data backup and disaster recovery becomes more cost-effective and secure, with automatic backup of data in two separate remote locations. Whitehat infrastructure services are designed to be modifiable and flexible, fully scalable both up or down, with a pay-as-you-go model that meets the changing needs of all sizes and types of organizations.

Whitehat’s state-of-the-art cloud infrastructure, which uses premier names such as Cisco, VMware and NetApp, also tightens security and allows many operational benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  •     Firewalls with encryption
  •     Advanced around-the-clock monitoring
  •     Rapid and easy disaster recovery
  •     Customer support 24/7, 365 days per year
  •     Easy expansion (or contraction) of services to meet changing needs
