Turbonomic: Capacity Management in the Modern Data Center
Capacity management as an operational discipline has existed since the advent of
server-based computing, dating back to the age of the mainframe. Commercial tools
to support this discipline have existed for more than 30 years with each successive
generation of server platform creating its own unique requirements. As the data
center evolved from mainframes to midrange computing and from client server to
virtualized, the demand for capacity management tools has evolved in tandem.
