VM cores required for NFA accounts

Applies to: Nerdio for Azure (NFA) Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD)

When a new NFA account is provisioned, we create a standard set of servers as the foundation of your IT environment in Azure. The Nerdio environment will consume a certain number of cores in your Azure subscription.

Plan Total cores VM series breakdown
NFA Enterprise WVD 14 B: 10
Av2: 1
Dsv2: 1
Dsv3: 1
NFA Professional (25) WVD 14 B: 2
Dsv3: 4
Esv3: 8
NFA Professional (15) WVD 10 B: 2
Dsv3: 4
ESv3: 4
NFA Professional (5) WVD 10 B: 2

NFA Core 2 B: 2


Nerdio Tip

Should your subscription not have sufficient cores quota for a certain VM size or for a region, you must request an increase in quota from Microsoft Azure. See this KB article for steps to request a quota change.

It's important to know when creating a new WVD pool, two hosts get created right off the bat and then one gets removed once the provisioning is complete. As a result, the core quota requirement will be larger than what it appears. Just make sure your quota is large enough to initially spin up 2 hosts. The exact quota requirement will vary depending on the VM series you selected for the pool. Reference THIS article to check the core count on your VM series.
