For graphics-intensive desktop deployments, we recommend the VDI-optimized 2U servers that support GPU hardware.
We have designated common configurations as Management-optimized, Density-optimized, and Virtual Workstation. These designations are referenced throughout this document and are outlined in the following table.
|Management-optimized||2 x Intel Xeon Silver 4214 (12 core @ 2.2 GHz)||192 GB (12 x 16 GB @ 2400 MHz)||4 TB + (Capacity)||None||Offers a scalable and value targeted configuration that meets the required compute and I/O demands|
|Density-optimized||2 x Intel Xeon Gold 6248 (20 core 2.5 GHz)||768 GB (12 x 64 GB @ 2933 MHz)||8 TB + (Capacity)||Up to 3 x full length, dual width (FLDW) (for example, the RTX 8000)
Up to 6 x full length, single width (FLSW)
|Offers an abundance of high-performance features and components selected to maximize user density|
|Virtual Workstation||2 x Intel Xeon Gold 6254 (18 core @ 3.1 GHz)||384 GB (12 x 32 GB @ 2933 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.|
