We’re looking to buy 2 servers on which we want to host a VM which would required a GPU.
So far, after reading about vSGA vs vGPU vs vDGA vs GRID, we think about going with vDGA to maintain compatibility and performance with the software vendor.
For some reason, Dell seems to requires 2 CPU even if we would be good with 1 for processing power. But as the licensing model of VMware is based on socket, 2 sockets of Enterprise Plus is a lot more costly than 2 sockets of Standard.
Standard doesn’t include: Accelerated Graphics for Virtual Machines
But it’s unclear for me which or which combination (maybe all) of those accelerated graphics solutions aren’t supported:
* vSGA (Virtual Shared Graphics Acceleration)
* vGPU or MxGPU (Virtual Shared Pass-Through Graphics Acceleration)
* vDGA (Virtual Dedicated Graphics Acceleration)
