Capacity planning is an important part of managing any virtual infrastructure setup. If you don’t have enough capacity, you run the risk of resources being over-provisioned. However, provisioning excessively just to avoid this results in higher operational expenses.

Hear a walk-through of the four steps of capacity management:

  • Planning
  • Allocation
  • Optimization
  • Maintenance

The walk-through will address these common questions:

  • How can you forecast changes?
  • What kind of results will these changes have on the rest of your environment?
  • How do you know when you’ll run out of CPUs, memory or disk space?
  • How can you plan for future needs?

Find the right balance of performance and cost-savings for today and in the future!
