Capacity Planning and Management

Capacity Planning

 

Capacity planning is all about having the correct amount of capacity optimized for your IT environment. Capacity planning software should ensure that end-users are never impacted by capacity issues and that IT is allocating capacity properly. Unfortunately, many enterprises unknowingly overspend on capacity when they don't need to. It all starts with knowing the answers to the "Big 3" capacity questions. See below for more.

Can You Answer the "Big 3" Capacity Questions

Capacity can haunt your IT service delivery, but it doesn't have too. As long as you can answer the Big 3 capacity planning questions across your entire infrastructure. Simple questions, but you'll need deep, accurate, and cross-platform monitoring and reporting to answer them. Reporting on capacity in Excel isn't going to cut it.

1. How much capacity do you currently have?

2. How much capacity are you currently using?

3. When are you trending to run out of capacity?

Capacity Planning Software

A Clear and Unified View of Capacity Across Platforms

If you want a better way to plan, manage, and report on IT capacity across all your servers, applications, and networks, you need the right tool. up.time gives you unified capacity planning, monitoring and management across Windows, Linux, UNIX (AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Novell), Virtual (VMware, Hyper-V, Xen) and Cloud servers. See a total view of your current capacity and trend your future capacity needs. up.time can show you historical capacity data from yesterday, last week, last month, or a year ago. up.time's deep and accurate IT capacity reporting helps you manage capacity better.

Proactively Manage IT Capacity

Proactive capacity tools see problems before they happen across the entire datacenter (virtual and physical servers). Quickly see how much capacity you have and how much capacity you are currently using in both physical and virtual environments. up.time's capacity forecasting, with instant graphs on critical server resources (including Memory, CPU, Disk, and I/O), keeps you in control. up.time's capacity monitoring, alerting, and reporting shows you the complete capacity picture, so you never get blindsided. Find tough capacity bottlenecks even in very dynamic virtual environments.

Know When Capacity Will Run Out, Before it Happens

up.time's capacity planning and trending highlights the direction that your capacity position is moving in, so you can clearly see capacity problems well ahead of time. Set capacity thresholds and get alerted before it's too late. Forensic "Time Travel" capacity reporting allows IT to travel back in time to see how and why capacity problems occurred over the past few minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months. In virtual environments, time travel back and see your capacity, even if your environment has dynamically changed since then.

Capacity Planning

Enterprise capacity demands can scale on a daily basis. up.time's proactive automation features can dynamically add or remove server capacity in virtual environments, so capacity never slows down performance or affects the end-user. up.time can spin up virtual instances to meet heavy demand instantly, and then decommission that capacity when the demand passes, ensuring there's no wasted capacity or VM sprawl to deal with.

up.time is a highly customizable and unified IT dashboard that provides comprehensive server monitoring, network monitoring, and application monitoring, along with complete capacity planning and IT SLA monitoring. up.time is used by Fortune 500 companies (monitoring and reporting on over 100,000 elements), as well as mid-sized and small enterprises. Easily see across IT silos and platforms to proactively stop problems before they happen. Use up.time for comprehensive and unified monitoring of your IT environment.

Time to value, that's the key. Easy to use, fast to deploy, and highly scalable, that's up.time. Customize, extend, and scale to over 100,000 elements, easily import existing monitoring scripts from other tools (in any language) for a painless migration. up.time has snap-in integration and can pass to, and receive data from, other IT and business tools (Help Desk, CMDB, BI tools, etc.).

up.time was designed to be easy-to-use, and so is our licensing is. Each monitored element only requires a single element license, regardless of the device type (physical server, virtual server, network device). This includes everything that up.time offers, such unlimited application monitors, service monitors, performance data collection, capacity management and access to all graphing, reporting, dashboards and SLA management features. Don't overspend on complex and expensive solutions.
