ZCentral HP- Header-img

A COMPLETE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SOLUTION TO POWER A REMOTE WORKFORCE

HP’s ZCentral Remote Boost has helped the media and entertainment industry transition to a new way of working. By providing remote access to advanced computing, editors, artists, and other creative professionals can now create and collaborate from anywhere.

ZCentral is more than just Remote Boost, as HP released ZCentral Connect, a light-weight connection manager geared specifically for ZCentral Remote Boost.

ZCentral Connect Management Software allows the IT manager to manage and monitor ZCentral Remote Boost connections. It’s designed to simplify the management and sharing of centralized workstations with multiple users powered by HP ZCentral Remote Boost software to provide amazing remote workstation experiences.

With ZCentral Connect, HP has become the only IT company that is the single product line source for all the hardware and software for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. The entire VDI stack has been designed from the ground up, and perhaps more importantly supported by HP.
