Capacity planning is one of the most difficult aspects of building a data center today, given the complexity and number of variables to consider.
This new White Paper, from leading solutions and innovation provider Panduit, brings fresh insight into the central issues facing data center planners both for initial “build” and for future growth, with valuable “real life” examples drawn from actual customer case studies.
Download now to understand how best to:
• Avoid capacity fragmentation: identify areas of “lost” or “stranded” capacity
• Establish “best fits” for capacity in your center
• Maintain equilibrium between the four critical elements of any effective data center management plan
• Implement proactive planning: speed decision-making and deployment
• Optimize existing resources
• Improve data center operations and efficiency
• Reduce OPEX
• Avoid unnecessary CAPEX by extending the life of your center.

Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business.
Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

In a context of mass data fragmentation on-premises and in the cloud, organizations now struggle with the compounded complexities brought about by modern workloads such as containers, NoSQL/NewSQL databases, and SaaS applications. These new workloads are turning traditional backup and recovery approaches on their head—in particular, in Microsoft Office 365 deployments for which new backup, recovery, and data management schemas must be deployed.
Sign up for the webcast and you will learn: The strategic benefits of a robust information infrastructure for performance management, How to take immediate action if your operating reporting has data latency challenges, How to drive broader adoption in the business by addressing critical data challenges, Why the combination of IBM and Cognos, an IBM company, accelerates the delivery and quality of the information needed to drive business performance.
With continued expansion of organizational storage allocation requirements, the time required for file-based data backup also continues to increase yet the time allotted for this data backup remains constant, exposing a critical issue. Though backup software vendors continue making advancements in technology to speed up the process, disk fragmentation will continue to remain an unresolved issue that must be addressed on the file system level to solve this bottleneck.
