First up, there is a much stronger demand from the remote workforce with stay-at-home and social distancing measures in place. To this end, HPE released a more powerful virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution. The company stated that HPE Moonshot now ships with the new HPE ProLiant m750 server blade. This upgrade in hardware can see performance jumps as high as 70% while using 25% less power. This translates to power 33% more remote workers on a quarter less power.

On the financial side of things, businesses of all sizes are feeling the economic pinch of the pandemic. To aid here, HPE is offering new, innovative financial and asset lifecycle options including short-term rentals and 90- day payment deferrals on VDI solutions. The company is also offering VDI solutions as-a-Service through HPE Greenlake.

HPE also has new, preconfigured VDI solutions for SMB up to enterprise. The new solutions are built on either HPE ProLiant or HPE Synergy servers. If companies are looking to leverage these VDI solutions they can start as low as 80 and scale up to over 2,000 remote workers. The solutions are designed with Citrix and VMware environments in mind.
