A Capacity Supply Model for Virtualized Servers

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Nowadays, data centers are being run incident-driven. Quite often, further hardware systems are installed as a reaction on new customer needs. Despite acquisition costs for further hardware systems being considered uncritical, the extension of the information infrastructure leads to higher administration, maintenance, and finally personnel costs. For an efficient usage of the existing information infrastructure, there are concepts such as Virtual and Adaptive Computing to logically separate hard- and software. Realizing these concepts allows abandoning incident-driven business structures. The paper discusses a model to plan the capacity supply of physical and virtual servers.
