Dell Precision R5400 Rack Workstation

The Dell Precision R5400 Rack Workstation paired with the Dell FX100 Remote Access Device, forms a unique Dell solution. This flexible standards based offering enables remote access to the full performance of a rack workstation from anywhere on the network. In addition users can:

* Securely centralize data and applications
* Enable high-performance GPGPU clusters
* Resolve traditional KVM distance limitations

Uncompromised Workstation Performance

The Dell Precision R5400 is a high performance dual socket rack workstation that provides an industry-standard alternative to blade workstations providing fully scalable high performance graphics options.

* Wide choice of standard desktop workstation class OpenGL graphics cards with the flexibility to change at a later date
* Additional standard PCIe and PCI slots for excellent flexibility
* No proprietary enclosure means low initial investment and freedom from being locked to a single vendor
* New possibilities for High Performance Computing solutions through applications written to utilize the outstanding floating point performance of GPGPUs (general purpose GPUs on high end graphics cards) instead of, or in addition to, the workstation CPUs

Next-Generation Flexibility

The Dell FX100 Remote Access Device, part of Dell's Flexible Computing offering, consists of a standard PCIe card housed in the host rack workstation and a portal device that is directly connected to the remote user's peripherals. Unlike software-based remote access solutions, the FX100 uses dedicated hardware to compress, encrypt and manage the communication between the host system and the portal.

With the Dell FX100 Remote Access Device, a user's front of screen experience will be similar to actually sitting at the workstation.
