VMware vSphere Capacity Planner

Lighten your workload and keep your wallet heavy with SHI’s VMware vSphere Capacity Planner assessment.

We collect comprehensive server usage details that can be difficult to gather on your own and develop a complimentary virtualization game plan – customized for your specific business needs.

The Process

  1. The Capacity Planner is installed, collecting all-inclusive resource utilization data and comparing it to industry-standard reference data.
  2. The data is then analyzed, revealing insightful metrics around CPU, memory, network and disk utilization.
  3. The output will be a Capacity Planner report that details your environment’s current state, future goals and TCO/ROI information.

The entire procedure takes between 45 and 60 days and includes:

  • Kickoff Call: Environment and technology requirements are outlined.
  • Data Collector Installation: The tool is installed in your environment.
  • Server Inventory & Performance Metric Collection: Data is collected for roughly 30 days.
  • Collection Conclusion: Data collection ends and the tool is removed.
  • Assessment Report & Solution Presentation: We provide a thorough Capacity Planner report and unveil a complete solution featuring software, hardware and services tailored to your specific environment.
