VDI Flash Calculator v2.4 Released

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

This new release offers complete support for VMware View 5.0, vSphere 5, and the new Windows 7 3D rendering features.

Amongst many additions is the ability to have up to 1,000 desktops per desktop pool, extended number of supported cores for host calculation, extra vRAM for 3D rendering and memory overhead swap file for vSphere 5.0 calculation.

Refer to vSphere 5.0 New .vswp file & Storage Tax on VDI and VMware View 5.0 3D Reverse Engineered for specific information on those topics.




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