For graphics-intensive desktop deployments, we recommend the VDI-optimized 2U servers that support GPU hardware.
The vSAN Ready Node R7525 can be configured with or without GPUs. Dell Technologies also offers similar configurations in a 1U/1 node appliance, although fewer graphics configurations are available on these platforms.
We have designated common configurations as Management-Optimized, Density-Optimized, and Virtual Workstation. These designations are outlined in the following table and are referenced throughout the document.
