A quick capacity table for DS6000 and DS8000

This "Quick Capacity Table for DS6000-DS8000" is also published at Techdocs. It's a spreadsheet that lets you do a quick capacity sizing for the DS6000 and the DS8000 showing physical as well as effective capacity. Watch out, there's several tabs to the spreadsheet. The third e.g. is the DS8000 sizing tab. You have to specify the DS8000 Model, Disk type and format and the Raid type. After you've initialized the capacity table, you can still switch between 'decimal' and 'binary' capacity and you can change individual disk packs and/or raid configuration for these. Interesting document !
