calculatorLast week a collegue asked how big the initial database for VirtualCenter should be and how much it grows.  He also needed to know much diskspace he needed to reserve for the database.

Since we have to do this more often I thought it would be handy to collect the various calculation sheets here.

Here are the links to the calculation sheets I found:

VirtualCenter database calculator for Oracle VirtualCenter database calculator for SQL Server

VMware Site Recovery Manager Sizing Estimator for SQL Server VMware Site Recovery Manager Sizing Estimator for Oracle

Update Manager Sizing Estimator

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a VMware View Composer database sizing tool. If I missed any database sizing tools please let me know so I can update the list.
