  • GPU support for NVIDIA GRID Maxwell M10 and the latest Intel Iris Pro virtual graphics
  • RAM: 5TB per host, with a corresponding bump to 1.5TB per VM
  • Host CPU count has been increased to 288 cores
  • Guest virtual CPU count has increased to 32
  • Disk scalability has also increased with support for up to 255 virtual block devices per VM and 4096 VBDs per host, all while supporting up to 20,000 VDIs per SR
  • Active Directory performance to support very large AD forests with a resulting improvement in login times
