INTRODUCING ZCENTRAL

Introducing the world’s only single-source remote workstation solution1. Centralize your high-compute performance and free your power users to tackle complex, graphics-intensive projects from anywhere.

THE ULTIMATE HIGH-PERFORMANCE SOLUTION

  • KEEP CLOSE CONTROL

    Manage connections between remote power users and your centralized hardware with HP ZCentral Connect². Assign individual machines or create pools for groups to share. All from a single console.

  • Z POWER. ANYWHERE.
