VDI Flash Calculator v2.3 Released + Manual

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

This new release offers support to two key features in VMware View that had not before been covered by the calculator. The first is the support for 1-to-Many relationship between Parent VM and Desktop Pools. Now it is possible to define how many desktop pools will use the same Parent VM. Previous versions of the calculator automatically assumed a relationship one-to-one.

The second feature is the added support for calculation of Full Clones. Full Clones are calculated differently than Linked Clones and do not offer a number of operational benefits, however Full Clones are commonly used.




Additionally, I have also crafted a quick manual to help you to better use the VDI Flash Calculator. The manual can be found at http://myvirtualcloud.net/?p=1927.

If you still have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Read below the full list of features.

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.
