Data center capacity planning

Meeting the applications and processing needs to support a growing enterprise has to be matched with a consideration of the capabilities of the facility the equipment will be housed in. This webcast covers aspects of implementing a capacity expansion strategy that need to be addressed to avoid hotspots, insufficient power and availability problems.

The traditional answer to growing capacity (more computing power) leads to problems with cooling and power distribution, especially with blade server technology. To help you work around these issues, this webcast, with industry expert Rick Sawyer, outlines:

  • The critical need for organizations to consider these inevitable changes now
  • Meeting server, storage and network needs with data center capabilities
  • Ways to provide capacity expansion without running into hotspots, power inefficiencies or availability problems
