I’m working on a requirement to deliver a “power user” experience for Citrix end-users. The workloads should be able to cater for high resolution video @1920 x 1080p across dual display heads and good multimedia experience when browsing etc.
Concurrency: 380 Users
HW: HPE RackMount with NVIDIA M10’s (this is our preferred option)
My initial thinking here was to assign FULL 8Gb frame buffer and carve out 4 XenApp VM’s capable of delivering a Server 2016 published desktop using the lowest M10 vGPU profile BUT apparently these don’t can’t deliver graphics above 1280 x 1080p resolution??
So should I be then be looking at Windows 10 Pooled desktops using XenDesktop with M10-1B (1GB) frame buffers instead?
My preference is for better balance between user density and experience rather than a “rolls-royce” solution as the users don’t require any CAD or 3D apps it’s just multimedia content. Any sizing pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
