For graphics-intensive desktop deployments, Dell Technologies recommends the VDI-optimized 2U/1 Node appliances that support GPU hardware.
The VxRail V Series and vSAN Ready Node R740xd server can be configured with or without GPUs. Dell Technologies also offers similar configurations in a 1U/1 Node appliance, although graphics configurations are not available on these platforms.
We have designated common configurations as Management-Optimized, Density-Optimized, and Virtual Workstation. These designations are referenced throughout the documentation.
|Management-Optimized||2 x Intel Xeon Silver 4214 (12-core @ 2.2 GHz)||192 GB (12 x 16 GB @ 2,400 MHz)||4 TB + (capacity)||None||Offers density and value to provide a dedicated environment to deploy virtualized management infrastructure.|
|Density-Optimized||2 x Intel Xeon Gold 6248 (20-core @ 2.5 GHz)||768 GB (12 x 64 GB @ 2,933 MHz)||8 TB + (capacity)||Up to 3 x full length, dual width (FLDW)|
Up to 6 x full length, single width (FLSW)
|Offers an abundance of high-performance features and tiered capacity that maximizes user density.|
|Virtual Workstation||2 x Intel Xeon Gold 6254 (18-core @ 3.1 GHz)||384 GB (12 x 32 GB @ 2,933 MHz)||6 TB + (capacity)||Up to 3 x FLDW|
Up to 6 x FLSW
|Offers even higher performance at the tradeoff of user density. Typically for ISV or high-end graphics workloads.|
