PowerFlex uses industry-leading Dell EMC PowerEdge servers that are rigorously tested and integrated into the PowerFlex system with a broad range of configuration options based on the requirements.
The following hyperconverged nodes are recommended for this solution:
- PowerFlex R640 – a 1U compact and powerful node, ideal for regular (non-graphics intensive) virtual desktops, occupying less space in the data center resulting in more density per rack.
- PowerFlex R740xd – a 2U node that supports NVIDIA GPU hardware, the NVIDIA virtual GPU software enables a physical GPU to be shared across multiple virtual desktops. Recommended for graphics intensive VDI use cases.
