A very basic version of NetApp Usable Space Calculator. Please provide feedback.

 

March 18, 2014 - Latest version 2.1 - Minor updates to include some new disks and a few disk calculation bugs

 

Sep 5, 2013 Update: Software Version 2.1. Minor updates - Added 2 new disk sizes ( 1.2 TB SAS & 4 TB SATA )

 

Aug 8, 2013 Update: I have updated the software version to 2.0 and fixed some bugs.

 

Also this includes 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)

I have developed this Raid Group Size Estimator based on many users request. As usual please provide feedback if you do some testing.
