How do I size VDI desktops and RDS session hosts?

Microsoft Azure allows for multiple combinations of vCPU, vRAM and in some regions GPU. It's important to test and benchmark client applications to determine the right sizing for all VDI desktops and RDS hosts.

During the initial provisioning process Nerdio creates a single VDI desktop and RDS Session host. Both, desktop and RDS server, are spun up as a D1v2 instance. Azure's D1v2 VMs include a single core with 3.5GB memory and support SSD drives.

You are prompted to size the desktop when creating a new VDI desktop user. VDI Desktops can be resized at any time via NAP->Users->Edit User. RDS hosts can be resized in NAP by going to Servers->VM Size.

bulletpoint Use the NFA Cost Estimator to estimate Azure costs when sizing a desktop or server. Log in to NAP, and select NFA Cost Estimator under Billing.
