If you use resource-hungry applications, you need an operating system that can smoothly handle large amounts of data without choking. You need one that doesn't make you wait for file saving or transferring, that uses fewer CPU cycles so there’s more capacity for running multiple apps simultaneously, and one that runs optimized for the next generation of hardware. That's Windows 10 Pro for Workstations.
Speed through the toughest workloads
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations supports devices with persistent memory, the fastest data storage possible on workstations. Persistent memory also keeps your files at hand if you shut down the system.
Because time is money
You'll save valuable time on file transfers between server and PC with SMB Direct. It uses RDMA-(Remote Direct Memory Access) capable network adapters to get full throughput from high speed networks. It also provides very low latency network requests, so remote storage feels like local storage. And it significantly reduces CPU usage, so there's more computing power available for big applications like Autodesk or Adobe Creative Suite.
Server-grade data protection
Microsoft's Resilient File System (ReFS) combined with Storage Spaces provides highly resilient storage for large volumes of data that can be automatically backed up to multiple mirrored drives. ReFS detects if data becomes corrupt on any one of them, and then repairs it across all drives, which helps ensure you're working with clean data.
Ready for next-gen hardware
Choose high performance configurations including server-grade Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors, with up to 4 CPUs and add memory up to a massive 6TB. That provides the power you need to run advanced workloads, with CPU cycles left free to run other apps simultaneously.
