HP's Z800 enables professional graphics applications to run at near native performance inside of virtualized guest operating environments. This is a new capability in the industry, and provides a better way for some customers to deploy their IT. HP enabled this capability by integrating several key partners' technologies into HP's Z800 Workstation: Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d), NVIDIA's SLI Multi-OS technology, and Parallels Workstation Extreme's (PWE) FastLane architecture. This paper describes an example of the economic and energy benefits that may be realized when deploying a Z800 with PWE.
