I’ve started working at a new place and need some guidance going forward.
I’ve worked with XenApp and VMware before but it was not this advanced.
Users have thin clients and connect to a shared Desktop using the Receiver.
The Citrix farm is setup with a bunch of PVS’ed XenApp VM’s. Each VM has assigned one GPU via PCI passthrough (or whats-it-called?!).
This setup is not ideal; VMware HA is not working on VM’s with GPU passthrough enabled, the VM console in vCenter is black with a black dot as the cursor (RDP works) on each machine due to the GPU (not sure what’s going on). And, I’m not even 100% sure that the GPU passthrough is operational and working for the users.
I see that ESXi 6 lists support for vGPU. And that you can, instead of letting one VM hog a GPU all for itself, share the GPU’s over many VM’s.
But I can not find any information if that is possible to do in vSphere (I can only find info about VMware Horizon) and/or with XenApp.
What would you do in my shoes? I am planning for major upgrades after the summer vacation, not sure what I should upgrade though :)
Sorry for any crappy english :)
