Hi community!

I wonder if anyone is using something similar to the online PQM Configurator for capacity configurations?
I would like to have a standalone tool or document that will easily provide some key HDS metrics based on the following capacity inputs:

- useable vs raw
- HDD Specs (type, size) (speed should not come into play) encryption?
- RAID Specs (Level, Combination)
- # HDD per tray (AMS) or per rack (VSP)
- spares
- Advanced features (HDP?, encryption?)

If not in-depth, maybe some rules of thumb could do it, but I am interested in a HDS focused solution...

many thanks in advance for your replies!
