This session discusses how to create a capacity management plan that includes public, private, and legacy workloads, accounting for how the plan changes over time to accommodate increasing public cloud content.

IT executives have targeted moving workload to public cloud over time. It is important the the capacity planner understand the adoption of public clouds, and the sensitivity analysis of how that changes over time. The session is designed to minimize the amount of stranded assets due to data center consolidation strategies that include moving workload to public cloud

Key Takeaways

  • Data center capacity management uses the same principles as server, storage, and network capacity management
  • Metrics exist that can size moving workload to and if necessarily back from public clouds
  • An IT capacity plan should incorporate public and private cloud content aligned to their overall business and IT strategy

The session is best for those who are:

  • Early careerists or new to this subject area (Intro/Beginner)
  • Have a working knowledge of the subject area
