3.1 Assessments and Capacity Planner
VMware Capacity Planner can help to successfully plan and estimate the size of the foundation infrastructure required for a scalable vCloud deployment. Capacity Planner provides the following benefits:
*Increased productivity with server consolidation and capacity optimization.
*Reduced complexity through IT standardization and hardware containment.
*Improved predictability with capacity utilization trends and virtualization benchmarks.
See the VMware Capacity Planner datasheet for additional information (http://www.vmware.com/products/capacity-planner/overview.html).
VMware Capacity Planner software is typically used during a Virtualization Assessment service delivered by VMware Professional Services or a VMware partner.
