Capacity management solution rationalizes IT resources in economic downturn
Rationalizing IT resources while still being able to support the business is imperative for all corporations. To that end, Neptuny announces Caplan 3.0 software to facilitate implementation of virtualization and consolidation initiatives, and alignment of IT resources with business initiatives.
In a slumping economy it becomes even more important to optimize the use of resources and to reduce operating and capital costs. Caplan 3.0 reduces overcapacity via its ability to determine the amount of capacity required at any given time, leading to a more cost effective and greener IT department.
Caplan 3.0 also predicts capacity shortages to reduce the likelihood of any performance or capacity-related incidents, and ensure that the minimum capacity required to keep the business running is available in the event of any IT failure.
By doing “what-if?” analysis, Caplan reduces the time and increases the accuracy of analyzing the impact of infrastructure change. This analysis allows a quick comparison of different scenarios and hence a reduction of unforeseen critical situations, such as service disruptions, not meeting SLAs or even application crashes. Caplan enables the IT manager to identify critical situations that may occur if changes are made to the infrastructure so as to reallocate underutilized resources and facilitate communication between the IT department and the rest of the business.
Caplan 3.0 can be leveraged for virtualized environments as well. The latest release supports several virtualization technologies including VMware ESX Server, AIX Micro partitions, HP nPartition/vPartition, Solaris Dynamic System Domains, and MS Virtual Server 2005.
