  • HP Z2 G4 Tower Workstation

    Designed for BIM workloads and 3D CAD modeling and rendering, the Z2 G4 Tower Workstation from HP delivers server-grade power in the form factor of a desktop tower with plenty of room in the chassis for system expansion. Built for architects, product developers, and education labs, the Z2 G4 Tower is certified for Adobe, Avid, SolidWorks, Creo, Solid Edge, Bentley MicroStation, GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Inventor, and Vectorworks.

    The system is powered by a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8700 Six-Core processor that will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and can be boosted up to 4.6 GHz. The 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 8GB, there are four 288-pin DIMM memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using a 16GB chip in each of the four slots.

    For storage of your files, the 512GB Z Turbo Drive PCIe M.2 SSD offers quick access to your data. For additional internal storage, there are two empty internal 3.5" drive bays, two external half-height 5.25" drive bays, and an M.2 slot for a PCIe SSD. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z2 G4 features six 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which doubles as a charging port, plus two USB 2.0 Type-A ports. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics card has 5GB of GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to connect multiple external displays using its four DisplayPort 1.4 outputs at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 @ 60 Hz. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Conexant CX20632 5.1 HDA codec outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

    The Z2 G4 Tower Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It runs using a 500W power supply that is 90% efficient and operates using 90-269 VAC at 47-66 Hz. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

    Windows 10

    Start Menu
    After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
    Cortana
    Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
    Microsoft Edge
    After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
    Windows Store
    For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
    Windows Continuum
    Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
    Xbox on Windows 10
    Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
    Windows 10 Pro
    The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

  • WD 4TB Red Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD (OEM)

    Designed with SMB customers in mind, the 4TB Red Pro 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD from WD is well-suited for medium to large-scale NAS environments with up to sixteen 3.5" drive bays. Engineered to handle increased workloads, this 4TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 256MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, which all help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 217 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 600,000 load/unload cycles, <10 in 1015 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, dual-plane balance control technology, and 1,000,000 hours MTBF for 8-16 bay NAS systems. Shock protection is provided by a multi-axis shock sensor and WD's NASware 3.0 helps increase system compatibility, allowing Red Pro drives to be more easily integrated with your existing network infrastructure.

    General Features

    Professional Solutions
    Designed specifically with SMB customers in mind the WD Red family has expanded with the addition of WD Red Pro, which is available for the 8 to 16 bay medium to large-scale NAS environments. With a 4TB storage capacity, this WD Red Pro drive carries a 5-year limited warranty and was engineered to handle the increased workloads from your business.
    NASware 3.0 Technology
    With advanced firmware technology built into this WD Red Pro drive, NASware 3.0 enables seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance for systems operating in the demanding NAS environment.
    Vibration Protection
    In combination with 3D Active Balance Plus, WD Red Pro also features hardware vibration compensation technology which monitors the drive to correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time, further increasing drive reliability.
    Enhanced Accuracy for NAS
    For overall enhanced accuracy for NAS, WD Red Pro is also equipped with dual actuator technology which improves positional accuracy over the data tracks and head positioning. StableTrac technology then secures the motor shaft at both ends to reduce system-induced vibration and stabilize the drive platters for accurate tracking during read and write operations. Both technologies are important for larger 8 to 16 bay NAS environments.
    8 to 16 Bay Shock Protection
    WD Red Pro is equipped with a multi-axis shock sensor that automatically detects subtle shock events and dynamic fly height technology which adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data. This combination of technology further protects the drives in large 8 to 16 bay NAS environments and increases drive reliability.
    Error Recovery Prevention
    Built specifically for RAID and NAS environments, WD Red Pro drives come equipped with error recovery controls as part of NASware 3.0, which prevents the drive from fallout in RAID applications.
    Longer Warranty Coverage
    Complimenting WD Red at a 3-year limited warranty, WD Red Pro offers longer warranty coverage with a 5-year limited warranty for an even greater peace of mind.
    Premium Support
    Every WD Red Pro hard drive comes with support services including a premium dedicated 24/7 support line (available in English, other regional support hours vary).
