Proliant DL380 G7 - RemoteFX

Hi,

 

We are looking to use 2x Proliant DL380 G7 Hosts to serv up VDI to clients using HyperV 2012 & RDS.

 

Currently we are running 20 guest VMs on each @ 4gb ram and 2 core, 10G network bandwidth to core switch.

 

Perfomance is quite good through HP WES8 thin clients - however I have found the bottleneck to be video rendering; because of this I want to enable RemoteFX on the Hosts but the option is greyed out due to the lack of a compatible video card.

 

Hope you can help with a couple of questions.

 

1. What sort of difference does RemoteFX actually make to VDI clients

 

2. Can you suggest a video card that is compatible with VDI 2012r2 and the Proliant DL380 G7 form factor/power requirements.

 

Any real life advice would be appreciated.

 

Cheers - Paul
