Other recent whitepapers could be added to the previous list (Whitepaper di VKernel utili per il vDesign): Requirements for Capacity Management in Virtual Environments Data centers with virtualized environments have a real need for effective capacity management. This white paper discusses why vm capacity management is critical to achieving the benefits of server virtualization, and outlines the three key requirements to consider when evaluating capacity management systems. Detecting Available VM Slots for Capacity Planning Knowing how many more virtual machine (VM) slots are actually available is vital to capacity planning in a virtualized environment. Determing […]

Last week I wrote about some VKernel whitepapers useful in the design of a virtual infrastructure. But there also some interesting and free tools: vScope Explorer: enterprise-wide visualization of performance, capacity and resource efficiency health across multiple vCenters and resources. Capacity Modeler: allows you to easily assess the performance impact of capacity changes to your existing virtualized environment. CapacityVIEW: it quickly exposes The number of VMs with performance problems Available capacity The amount of over allocated CPU, memory and storage The total amount of resources in your environment Number of powered on and off VMs

On VKernel there are several interesting white papers about the design of a virtual infrastructure, with the latest one related to vCPU sizing. vCPU Sizing Considerations vExpert David Davis and VKernel Product Marketing Manager Alex Rosemblat have written a white paper for virtualization administrators to gain a deeper understanding of vCPU sizing.  By reading this whitepaper, VM administrators will learn how to correctly size VMs, an approach to sizing new VMs that need to be deployed, how to institute a regular CPU sizing process for the data center and much more.
