Executive Level 1

Capacity Planning for Enterprise Data Deployment

This workshop describes a framework for capacity planning in an enterprise data environment. We will propose a model for defining service level agreements (SLAs) and then using these SLAs to drive the capacity planning and configuration for enterprise data solutions. Guidelines will be provided for capacity planning in a mixed workload environment involving both strategic and tactical decision support. Performance implications related to technology trends in multi-core CPU deployment, large memory deployment, and high density disk drives will be described. In addition, the capacity planning implications for different approaches for data acquisition will be considered.
