Dell EMC recommends that the VDI management infrastructure nodes be separated from the compute resources. Because our test environment was small, both management and compute are in the same vSphere HA cluster. Optionally, the management node can also be used for VDI VMs with an expected reduction of 30 percent of host resources for these nodes only. The 30 percent accounts for management VM resource reservations and should be factored in when sizing.
Compute hosts can be used interchangeably for Virtual Apps and Desktops published apps and desktops.
