Have you found Capacity Planning to be an unfruitful chore? Do you find yourself continually surprised by new applications surfacing on your data warehouse with little warning or poorly defined resource requirements? Is Capacity Planning only done as an eleventh hour means to budget forecasting? Effective Capacity Management is a critical aspect of a solid Performance Management Foundation.

This presentation defines the concepts of Capacity Management. We review the data required to establish basic capacity plans, and talk about turning basic Capacity Planning into robust Capacity Management. We examine many uncommon considerations that are necessary to be effective with Capacity Management, such as: operating windows, workload variations, and hardware changes. We also review a customer example of Capacity Forecasting, which will show all of these advanced concepts in practice.

Key Points

  • Learn the importance of Capacity Management
  • Understand requirements for robust Capacity Management
  • Putting all the data pieces together to form good Capacity Forecasts
