Z by HP delivers high-performance workstations to meet the demands of advanced analytics–right out of the box. Our desktops and notebooks are packed with industry-leading hardware and software innovations designed to accelerate your Data Science workflow.


software stack

We’ve taken the guess work out of creating the optimal data science environment by testing and preloading the most popular data science tools on select ZBooks and Z desktops. Save countless days installing, configuring, and maintaining your data science environment and be productive from day one. Z by HP offers the data science software stack on native Ubuntu, or Windows via Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2).

Why Z by HP?

Innovation is in our DNA. Our engineers’ sole job is to anticipate your needs before you even realize them and bring innovation you can’t get anywhere else.
  • Full-Throttle performance

    We start with enterprise-class components and work closely with partners like Intel and NVIDIA to test and certify them on our Z workstations. We conduct over 360,000 hours of brutal testing to help ensure you get max performance even on computation and graphics-heavy workflows.

  • Pro-grade collaboration

    Our proprietary remote collaboration technology allows dispersed teams to work together in real time. By remotely harnessing the power of Z, every user gets fast responsiveness and image quality, even with big data visualizations.2

  • Secure to the core

    Even one security incident can be catastrophic when you’re handling valuable IP. Block crippling cyber-attacks with Z by HP workstations.

  • Optimized performance for Data Science

    We run our Z devices through actual workflows and then adjust the component mix until we find the configurations that deliver a powerful experience.

  1. 1. WSL 2 requires Windows 10 or higher, Intel Core i5 processor or higher and is available on select Z workstations. You must be running Windows 10 version 2004 and higher (Build 19041 and higher)
  2. or Windows 11.
  3. For detailed Linux® OS/hardware support information, see: http://www.hp.com/support/linux_hardware_matrix.
    2. HP ZCentral Remote Boost Sender does not come preinstalled on Z Workstations but can be downloaded and run on all Z desktop and laptops without license purchase. With non-Z sender devices, purchase of perpetual individual license or perpetual floating license per simultaneously executing versions and purchase of ZCentral Remote Boost Software Support is required. ZCentral Remote Boost Sender for non-Z Hardware requires a license and Windows 10, RHEL/CentOS (7 or 8), or UBUNTU 18.04 or 20.04 LTS operating systems. macOS (10.14 or newer) operating system and ThinPro 7 are only supported on the receiver side. Requires network access. The software is available for download at hp.com/ZCentralRemoteBoost.
    3. Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Performance and clock frequency will vary depending on application workload and your hardware and software configurations. Intel’s numbering, branding and/or naming is not a measurement of higher performance.
    4. For storage drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 35GB of disk is reserved for system recovery software.
