I have just uploaded the new release of my online VDI Flash Calculator. This new release adds full support to VMware View 4.5 Disposable Disks and includes a Storage Breakdown Summary to facilitate planning of storage tiering.
Disposable Disks will benefit scenarios where virtual desktops are powered off when not in use and where storage tiering has been incorporated into the design. To use this feature make sure you enter the size of the disposable disk and select VMware View release 4.5 from the dropdown menu.
