Capacity management begins with service requirements of the organization and works through infrastructure requirements needed to deliver the specified levels of service. Creating bundles of apps with different “good enough” requirements brings costs down and maximizes the efficiency of a consolidated infrastructure. This workbook will help you:
- Develop a comprehensive data collection plan, which outlines required tasks and team members assigned to each.
- List and keep track of apps, hardware, and dependencies between them.
- Create app bundles with different service levels, in order to identify if apps with different service requirements depend on the same infrastructure, illuminating opportunities for improved capacity management.
Use this tool to assess your applications and infrastructure in light of the management advice presented in the associated research, Manage & Plan Capacity for the Internal Cloud.
