You can define a new standard capacity on the Desktop Capacity & Model Definition page.


  1. Click "+" above the Standard Capacities list.
  2. In the Capacity Definition dialog, enter a name for the new standard capacity.
  3. Under Capacity Definition, enter information as described below.
    • Enabled - Indicates whether the standard capacity is enabled.

    • vCPU - Number of virtual CPUs.

    • vRAM - Amount of virtual RAM in MB.

    • vGPU - Size of virtual GPU. Select a value from the drop-down list. Supported values are from 256 MB to 8 GB, depending on the underlying NVIDIA GRID card.


      Before making this setting, review the following information:

      • A vGPU-based capacity can be mapped only to a GPU-capable desktop manager.

      • A GPU-capable desktop manager is dedicated to the GPU desktops. Non-GPU desktops should not be created.

      • You can have multiple GPU desktops with different vGPUs in the same compute/desktop manager. The limitation in this case is that GPU resources may be under-utilized.

      • GPU desktops require memory to be reserved. Hence memory over allocation is not possible in a GPU compute.

      • vMotion and DRS are not supported for GPU desktops.

    • HD - Hard disk size in GB.

    • Display - Display name for the standard capacity.

  4. Click Add Desktop Capacity.
