Proactively manage capacity by predicting future needs from historical trends.

Capacity Planning

The exponential growth of applications and digital business initiatives has put pressure on IT departments to optimize the user experience. At the same time, however IT budgets are declining. As a result, IT capacity planning is more important than ever to optimize the utilization of data center assets, which can either lead to latency and downtime. However, you can tackle the task of planning technology resources to serve your organization’s needs more easily than you think. Galileo Performance Explorer monitors your complete infrastructure and provides the data you need to make capacity planning decisions.

With Galileo’s holistic view of your environment including essential data and metrics, you can create a capacity plan in 2 simple steps:

2. Use Predictive Analytics to Spot Issues

It’s good to know where you are today, but for capacity planning, you also need a window into the future.

Galileo analyzes trends in CPU, memory usage, IOPS, throughput and latency and utilizes intelligent thresholds to warn you before a problem occurs, so you can take action to avoid slowdowns and downtime. With user-friendly visually intuitive charts, you’ll get insights in minutes and be able to focus your time on which technology investments you need to make instead of trial and error.
