Windows 10 Pro for workstations

Upgrade to Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

Advanced work demands performance

For data scientists transforming big data into input signals and experimenting with multiple machine learning models, processing time equals productivity. The same is true for researchers, engineers, and teams focused on predictive modeling. Content creation roles such as media professionals and graphic designers generate — and need to preserve — an enormous amount of data and intellectual property through their work.

Power through advanced workloads with server-grade data protection & performance

Speed through demanding workloads

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations supports devices with persistent memory (aka non-volatile memory, or NVDIMM-N) so you can speed through advanced workloads with the fastest data storage possible on workstations. In addition, persistent memory keeps your files at hand in the event of a system power loss.

You’ll also save valuable time on file transfers between Server and PC with SMB Direct2, a Microsoft solution for network adapters with Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) capability. This technology uses RDMA capable network adapters to utilize the full throughput of high-speed networks, transferring data at line speeds.

Work confidently with server-grade resilience

In addition to speed, you also get server-grade data protection on your workstation – a very new and highly valuable feature for anyone working with large volumes of data, including intellectual property that needs to be preserved over time.

Do more using workstations with up to 4 CPUs and 6TB memory

With Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, you can select high-performance configurations with up to 4 CPUs (previously limited to 2 CPUs) and add massive memory up to 6TB (previously limited to 2TB), and it is required for server-grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors. We’ve also rolled the workstation capabilities into Windows 10 Enterprise (see diagram below).

These machines provide an enormous amount of power to run advanced workloads, with compute cycles left free so you can run other apps simultaneously.
