The PowerFlex family provides great flexibility in scaling the VDI environment to reduce the initial and future cost of ownership. Adding additional nodes to the cluster to increase resources (CPU, memory, disk capacity, network and GPU) allows for both horizontal and vertical scaling to match requirements. The boundaries are based on the number of nodes supported for a vSphere 6.7 cluster which is 64 nodes, although the PowerFlex cluster can scale much larger, well beyond the boundaries of the hypervisor in use.
GPU and non-GPU compute hosts can co-exist in the same cluster, adding or removing a graphics workload within a running cluster can be achieved with no issues. Only PowerFlex R740xd supports graphic cards.
PowerFlex Manager greatly simplifies the steps required to add nodes to an existing cluster by providing templates to complete the process.
