Timothy Taufik Chowi, CTO at Inti Karya Teknologi (Jakarta, Indonesia), has implemented SoftXpand 2011 for the company's Graphic-Design studio:

The studio is based on multiple clusters, of 8 users each, using SoftXpand 2011 for Multi-Seat configuration.

 

Says Taufik: 

"In the early tests I made, I tried 6 stations, all running heavy photoshop with absolutely no problem.In each workstation, we opened a big PSD file taking a bit over 2GB of RAM -  CPU utilization was still at low 20%. 
In comparison, I tried using Windows MultiPoint 2011, my only problem with this solution is that even when I have directly connected the stations, using the full potential of the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU), causing lag and stutters all over the place."
 
System Configuration:
  • Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68 PRO GEN3
  • CPU: I7 2600  
  • RAM: 16GB 
  • Video cards: 2 x ATI 6790 (total 8 ports), on-board video disabled.
  • USB hub in each workstation, plus USB audio adapter.
 

 

 SoftXpand system includes 2 x ATI 6790

The results:

  • Less computers in the studio;
  • Less Noise;
  • Less heat;
  • Lower electricity bills;
  • Lower maintenance costs;
  • More users;
