Data Center Operation: Capacity
Infrastructure capacity planning and optimization via shared data center model, enabling efficient equipment provisioning and right-sizing of your data center.
Simulation, optimization, and planning of infrastructure capacities to right-size the data center
Data Center Operation: Capacity predicts the optimal location for physical infrastructure and rack-based IT equipment based on the availability and requirements of physical infrastructure capacity; and user defined requirements such as redundancy, network and business use grouping. It reduces stranded capacity through optimized use of the physical infrastructure and avoids unplanned downtime. With its sophisticated simulation based on live data, Data Center Operation: Capacity proactively analyzes the impact of changes before they occur, enabling informed decision making and planning, ensuring that your physical infrastructure provides the required capacity for current and future needs..
