Cloud Capacity Management
Let’s see how capacity management is done in cloud environments. The previous chapter introduced the capacity management process. This chapter introduces capacity planning and management at various layers: business, service and component capacity. If we try to put the benefits of cloud computing in simpler terms, it would be “optimized resource utilization and cost savings”; which coincide with the goals and objectives of capacity management. In this chapter emphasis has been given to what constitutes the capacity management process and how various cloud stakeholders perceive capacity management. This chapter also explains that how the capacity management process can be applied to cloud computing to generate infrastructure economies and optimizations.
