Hi folks! So everyone and their dog is virtualizing right now. The question is, how do you know you are planning for the right capacity? How do you know if you are over or under provisioned?
You can make a ball park guess and just eyeball it, but that isn’t really a technically sound way of proving things to your boss when it comes time to budget. Instead what you need is a tool that can help you with this process.
VMware vCenter CapacityIQ can do just this. It will provide you with reporting the outlines exactly how you are using your capacity. This is an easy to setup and use tool that no administrator should be without. You can read more about it here.
