The popularity of cloud service spurs the increasing demands of cloud resources to the cloud service providers. Along with the new business opportunities, the pay-as-you-go model drastically changes the usage pattern and brings technology challenges to effective capacity planning. In this paper, the authors propose a new method for cloud capacity planning with the goal of fully utilizing the physical resources, as they believe this is one of the emerging problems for cloud providers. To solve this problem, they present an integrated system with intelligent cloud capacity prediction.
