The following figure illustrates the logical view of the VDI management infrastructure and virtual desktop VMs deployed in the cluster using three PowerFlex hyperconverged nodes, all the nodes are configured in the cluster shares both the compute and storage.
The vSphere ESXi hypervisor is installed on all nodes in the cluster, the SVM is deployed on the hypervisor to provide SDS and MDM services that make up the PowerFlex storage cluster. A single protection domain is created, and a storage pool is carved out of the SSDs available in the nodes. The SDC component is the PowerFlex client software VIB installed in the ESXi to access the volumes that are created from the storage pool.
VDI management and desktop datastores are PowerFlex volumes that are formatted with VMFS to store all the virtual machines deployed in the cluster.
Note: Dell EMC recommends deploying all the VDI management infrastructure on dedicated nodes from the virtual desktop compute nodes within the same or separate PowerFlex cluster.
