What is Managing Data Center Capacities?
Being unable to deploy critical infrastructure as required is not an option.
Data Center component capacities focuses on those components which, if not carefully monitored, can cause delays in provisioning for new applications. This blog is not all-encompassing but addresses those components where the author has experienced capacity problems in the past. This is especially true where the organization is fragmented and effective communication between the organizations responsible for the various components within the data center is required to avoid issues. For example, where the network accountability rests outside of the IT organization potential communication problems may arise. This could lead to an inadequate number of network ports required to deploy a server which now must sit idle until additional ports can be provisioned. This could also delay the deployment of a critical application. To avoid this sort of complication, the capacity management team should monitor the capacity of all components within the data center thus keeping the accountability in one place.
