You can create a desktop model on the Desktop Capacity & Model Definition page.


You must have at least one standard capacity defined before you can create a desktop model.


  1. If there is more than one standard capacity defined, select the one you want to use in the Standard Capacity list on the left of the page.
  2. Click "+" above the Desktop Models list.
  3. In the Model Definition dialog, enter the following information:
    • Name - Name for the desktop model.

    • Standard Capacity - Number of capacity units per desktop. The capacity unit in use is defined in the currently selected Capacity Definition.

      Note the following:

      • A desktop Manager can be mapped to only one standard capacity.

      • Once capacity is consumed (even a single unit), a desktop manager cannot be mapped/reassigned to different standard capacity.

    • Session - Indicates whether the desktop model is session-based. Choose Yes to provision remote desktop connections using Microsoft RDS (Remote Desktop Services). In this model, the Service Provider determines the type of services available to the Tenant and every desktop is identical, supporting the same applications. The user cannot install applications or customize the environment.

    • Enabled - Indicates whether the desktop model is enabled.

  4. Click Save.

What to do next

After adding a desktop model, you need to go to the Quotas tab of the Edit Tenant screen to enable and enter a value for Standard Capacity.
