IT organizations constantly strive to optimize IT infrastructure to meet enterprise needs efficiently and cost-effectively. For example, they may extend the life of an existing infrastructure by incorporating technologies such as virtualized workloads or storage area networks (SANs). Before planning and sizing workloads for a new infrastructure design, IT organizations should obtain a thorough understanding of existing system performance, including that of servers, storage, and workloads. The Dell Performance Analysis Collection Kit (DPACK) offers an in-depth view of server workload and capacity requirements that helps IT departments prepare for a migration or hardware refresh.
