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.

Find out how Red Hat® CloudForms gives IT administrators and managers a comprehensive solution to optimize their virtual, private cloud, and hybrid cloud infrastructures with advanced capacity planning and sophisticated resource management capabilities.
The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.

When studies indicate that around 70 per cent of an organisation’s data is usually ROT – redundant, obsolete or trivia – it makes no sense to leave it taking up expensive primary storage space. By downloading Redstor’s new Storage Analyser, you take the first step towards better capacity planning and cutting primary storage costs. It allows you to find out what space would be freed up if inactive data was offloaded to the cloud.

The ability to observe, diagnose, and subsequently improve the performance of business-critical applications is essential to ensuring a positive user experience and maintaining the highest levels of employee productivity and customer satisfaction. The challenge of establishing an effective application visibility and control function is only growing, as trends such as mobility, virtualization, and cloud computing fundamentally alter datacenter and application architectures.
With NetScaler Insight Center enterprises get:
• Unparalleled application visibility and invaluable operational intelligence;
• Increased operational efficiency, as troubleshooting and capacity planning efforts are greatly simplified;
• An optimized user experience that drives greater employee productivity and customer satisfaction;
• Increased assurance that governing SLAs will always be met; and,
• Reduced total cost of ownership, based on having a low-cost, low-impact solution—particularly compared to traditional
This white paper explores the challenges of increasing computing power in resource-constrained physical spaces and data centers experiencing high growth. We also explore how intelligent rack PDUs can meet these challenges and address critical uptime and capacity planning issues.
Enterprises that adopt a proactive approach to IT resource capacity planning, using the most advanced methods and tools available, are ensuring that their IT environments are right-sized to enable corporate growth and improve company performance.
802.11ac is well on its way to becoming the standard for next-generation Wi-Fi.

Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

It is very common for an IT organization to manage system performance in a reactionary fashion, analyzing and correcting performance problems as users report them. When problems occur, hopefully system administrators have tools necessary to quickly analyze and remedy the situation. In a perfect world, administrators prepare in advance in order to avoid performance bottlenecks altogether, using capacity planning tools to predict in advance how servers should be configured to adequately handle future workloads.
The term virtualization refers to the creation of virtual machines, virtual networks, and virtual disks (logical images of physical resources) that can execute work and then be returned to a shared resource pool. Cloud computing makes use of virtualization but cloud computing also focuses on allowing computing to be delivered as a service.
This whitepaper outlines issues that arise when planning for growth of IT infrastructure and explains how the colocation of data centers can provide scalability, enabling users to modify capacity quickly to meet fluctuating demand.
