I am excited to announce the release of a new version of my calculator. This new version (3.8) re-introduces the storage caching feature for for both read and write IO traffics. This feature was part of the old Flash calculator and is now being re-introduced.
The calculator now also support RAID 0 to enable calculations with newer storage technologies that do not required RAID groups, such as XtremeIO, Pure Storage and Nutanix. I also added support for Netapp RAID DP.
Additional user input validations have been added, ensuring that non-experienced users can also make good use of the calculator to size small or big VDI deployments.
For more information read the What’s New section below.
