High quality PC Or workstation for virtualization

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a few questions if anyone is willing to answer.

 

i need a PC or a Workstation maybe, that can be used by four separate users using their own peripherals, on four monitors

mostly it will be used for a kitchen designing software

currently, i3 and gtx 1050 do the job, with some minor problems

 

can you suggest what is needed for this, in general, and some option for on-site backup, preferably to a some lan attached server

 

software used does in fact support virtualization so harware part is where i'n not as experienced, at least with pro gear

In normal PC terms i'm an advanced user, no problems there, even some networking is not a problem

 

thanks people

honestly if currently an i3 and gtx1050 do the job kind of okay you are better of just upgrading that computers, this will be cheaper than buying a server, requires less setup time and if something fails only one computer is not working instead of all of them.

yes, there's  three machines now, two i3 and one i5, same gpu, 8gb ram. they do the job, but not superfast, and they take quite some time rendering in 3d, so customer has to wait for up to three minutes for every change, if they want to look at it in 3D

projects are not shared, so now each PC has it's own project folder, this way either of them could use all projects that are saved from a single app instance that is configured exactly as it should be

 

but you have a point there, maybe the save folder could be moved to a shared network drive

Have you looked at multipoint before? THere is one that is included in windows server and should work well here, and allows you to do this without making vms.

can you please explain in a sentence or two what is multipoint?

then it comes to the software using CPU or GPU or both for rendering. I dont know your software yet (what is it?) but it's more common to be CPU-based, only really complex CAD work use GPU power well.

 

Also what i3 and i5? They have more cores since 8th gen so I need to ask that.

software that lets multiple people use one computer at a time with their own keyboard, mouse and monitor.

 

Look here for the microsoft version https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/multipoint-services/introducing-multipoint-services
