VMware has yet again delivered another value-add component to vCenter. vCenter CapacityIQ provides capacity management capabilities for virtualised data centre and or desktop environments. The product integrates with vCenter Server ensuring that your virtualised capacity is always predictable and efficiently used.
The product website states:
“VMware vCenter CapacityIQ balances business demand with IT supply, without compromising performance, availability and security. With CapacityIQ, your IT infrastructure is guaranteed to have sufficient capacity to meet any business service level agreements.”
Once I have had a good play with CapacityIQ (which I intend on doing sometime this week), I will report back with my review of the product.
