August 8, 2013
NetApp Usable Space Calculator 2.0 - New Version Released

Updates in this version are

- A new feature called Raid Group Size Estimator where you key in disks values, raid type and disk type - the software will attempt to provide the best RG size values either based on NetApp recommendations or Optimal Capacity.
(Please note: The Raid group size input in the calculator is only for disk space calculations and this is ignored for the raid group estimator)
- Fixed a few disk calculation bugs
- A few UI changes
- Misc bug fixes on informational error messages

  1. What about deduplication? Have you looked at the inputs that NetApp uses for their sizer?

  4. Are you planning an update to include the 4TB drives?

  5. One more idea: When you use Metrocluster-/ Mirror-Setups, the usable capacity is only half of the result. It'd be great if you'd include this as well.
    Thanks
