VDI Flash Calculator v1.4 released! Added support for vswap calculation based on VM memory reservation.

I have just uploaded the new release of my online VDI Flash Calculator. This new release adds support for calculation of vswap (.vswp) files based on configurable VM memory reservation. Additional features are: Configurable Hypervizor (vmKernel) and virtual machine overheads.

– Host calculation based on HA scenario (N+1)
