VMware View VDI Flash Calculator v2.5 Released

Advertisement

I have just uploaded a new release of the online VMware View VDI Flash Calculator.

This new release offers a complete overhaul of the IOPS calculation, providing the ability to breakdown IOPS per disk type or tier. It also offers calculation for the number of VMs allowed to concurrently boot.

I have previously described how IO works in the following article:

Get hold of VDI IOPs, Read/Write Ratios and Storage Tiering

The VDI calculator can be found at http://myvirtualcloud.net/?page_id=1076. Alternatively, go to my blog homepage and select VDI Calculator on the top bar.
