Management cluster – Deployed management infrastructure VMs (vCenter server, Citrix CVAD servers, Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, Login VSI, Launcher VMs) on a separate cluster.
Compute cluster – Three PowerFlex R740xd hyperconverged nodes are used in the cluster to create desktop pools with different pool sizes for testing multiple workloads.

For hardware and software specifications used for this solution, see Configuration details.
All test results graphs include the performance of the platform during the logoff and power on of the virtual machines after all users log off when the test run has completed. The different phases of the test cycle are displayed in the test results graphs later in this document as ‘Logon’, ‘Steady State’, ‘Logoff’, and ‘Power On’. All graphs have time on the X-axis and the metric displayed on the Y-axis.
