HP Capacity Advisor is the industry's first lightweight, integrated tool for ongoing capacity planning, simulating placement of application workloads to help IT administrators improve server utilization. Capacity Advisor provides planning capability for the intelligent control of the HP Virtual Server Environment.
HP Capacity Advisor captures server utilization data (more than a thousand data points per server per day) and virtualization configuration scenarios in order to perform ongoing capacity planning. Using Capacity Advisor you can view historical resource usage data through an intuitive graphical interface and use that data to pre-test different scenarios before making changes to critical applications.
Capacity Advisor includes groundbreaking Smart Solver technology developed by HP Labs which shows the best fit for your workloads across hundreds of servers. Like having a team of Ph.D.s behind you, it takes guesswork out of traditional capacity planning. Capacity Advisor also includes metrics on energy utilization, so administrators can rapidly make decisions to make their data centers more energy-efficient. By running multiple scenarios you can make better decisions, match workloads to servers more precisely and get more from existing server resources before updating its systems.
HP Capacity Advisor can be used by general server administrators; your IT group can balance server utilization on an ongoing basis - not just at the time of initial deployment. With HP Capacity Advisor, matching workloads to existing resources in your virtualized IT infrastructure becomes more efficient, lowering overall IT costs and providing a better return on IT investment.
Capacity Advisor is for organizations that want to build flexible virtual server infrastructures to help optimize server resource utilization and reduce cost and complexity. HP Capacity Advisor reduces the time, effort, and complexity of virtualization planning.
