HP has been in the remote office game since the Mars rover program in 2004. While today’s remote work needs are a little more domestic by comparison, there is a new set of challenges. We all know about VDI which has been most effective for managing large groups of task workers. COVID has caused new problems though for creative pros and other high-end workloads that have shifted out of the office and into the home. Thus we’re now dealing with HDI, hosted desktop infrastructure.

Workers still need access to expensive GPU-heavy rigs, but moving the PC to the home isn’t a solution as these professionals also need access to the corporate network, file shares, etc. What’s more, organizations still want corporate data governance and backup policies applied. Lastly, organizations want these expensive systems to be in use for more than one shift per day.

Enter HP ZCentral Remote Boost – a software solution that aims to solve all of these problems, which also incorporates a little bit of collaboration and workflow optimization. Join this podcast as I talk with Tm Fenton, one of the leading experts on mobile work, and Clifton Robin, Global Technical Expert for HP’s remote work business. We discuss all of these issues and much more as it relates to empowering the professional remote workforce.
