VMware Capacity Planner
Optimize business and IT capacity planning
VMware Capacity Planner is a business and IT capacity planning tool for the datacenter and desktop that provides an integrated set of analysis, planning and decision support functions to enable faster, measurable and more accurate infrastructure assessment services.
The VMware Capacity Planner Data Collector is installed on-site at the data center being assessed. This component collects detailed hardware and software metrics required for capacity utilization analysis across a broad range of platforms without the use of software agents.
Web-Based Hosted Application Service
The Capacity Planner Dashboard is delivered as a web-based application that delivers rich analysis, modeling and decision support capabilities based on the data collected from your data center. Service providers will use this interface to access pre-built report templates and create custom reports depending on the type of assessment being delivered.
Analysis provided by the Capacity Planner Dashboard is based on comparisons to reference data collected across the industry. This unique capability helps in guiding decisions around server consolidation and capacity optimization for your data center.
