A great help in virtualization projects comes from return on investment (ROI) calculators that vendors sometimes publish online for free. While they are always fine tuned to justify the new technology adoption, they still remain a great starting point.
In April VMware released one of the best tool in this category, despite it only covered server consolidation scenarios.
But the new version released today is also able to calculate ROI in virtual lab automation and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments.
The fact the calculator can now export in Excel format along with PDF, makes it the tool of choice for any virtualization plan.
