Virtualized Capacity Planning and Management

Meet Future Demand with Confidence

Enjoy Capacity Planning Based on Real-Time Information

VMTurbo approaches capacity planning in a fundamentally different way. It uses efficient market principles to balance the supply and demand in your infrastructure, and applies these principles both now and into the future, producing accurate and actionable plans to ensure current and projected application needs are met without over spending on new hardware.

VMTurbo analyzes real-time information from your applications, VMs and hardware. This same information, which it uses to keep your environment in a perpetual state of health, is also used to simulate any changes you’d like to plan.

Successfully Managing Performance and Capacity in Cloud Environments

Answer Any “What if” Question

Ensuring that your data center is meeting the demands of your applications is critical to business growth—all the more so as your business scales. Don’t be that schmuck that’s stalling exciting growth and opportunity. Be the person that’s always got a plan for driving even more success.

VMTurbo’s capacity planning will simulate any project you’re considering for your data center, including:

Data Center Consolidations: Will I need more hardware? What utilization metrics will I see after the merge? Where will bottlenecks arise as additional resources are sharing the new environment?

Upgrading Server Hardware: How many of the new servers will I need? What utilization metrics will I see? What happens as load changes over time?

Improving VM Headroom: How can I better allocate resources across my existing estate to improve performance and free up room to grow virtualized workloads? How can I maximize my VM “headroom” or the number of VMs that I can fit?

Existing Application Growth: When will I run out of resources based on the projected workload demand growth? When will I need to buy more hardware?

Deploying New Application Workloads: Will I need to add more hardware? If so, how much and where? What utilization metrics will I see after adding the load? What if I add multiple types of workloads?

DR Planning: How do I ensure I have the right amount of compute and storage capacity on my secondary site if my primary site fails over?

Physical to Virtual (P2V) Migrations: How can I assure that my business critical apps can be virtualized successfully?

Hypervisor (V2V) Migrations: How much hardware will I need if I convert workloads from one hypervisor platform to another?

Cluster Flattening: If I can move workloads across cluster boundaries, how will that reduce fragmented utilization silos and how many hosts could be freed up?

Administrators can use data and metrics from their own virtual machines and hardware, alongside easy-to-create Host/VM templates to provide a before-and-after picture of the data center, specific workload placement recommendations, hardware utilization rates, and hard-dollar savings.

VMTurbo tracks both peak and average utilization rates taking seasonality into account and enables you to reserve capacity for future projects. And when you can’t meet demand for future reservations, you can easily run a plan to purchase only what you need.
