Right-sizing and configuring systems can increase efficiency and therefore profitability. Wrong-sizing has the opposite effect. Too little capacity and you suffer poor response, low productivity, and lost business. Too much capacity and you unnecessarily waste resources, increase complexity, and decrease manageability, wasting both time and money. And right-sizing hardware can help reduce software costs too. Since many licensing fees are tied to server size, downsizing systems can bring significant software savings.
Whether you are undergoing a hardware refresh, consolidating servers, or purchasing hardware for new application roll-outs, it is valuable to have accurate and objective advice regarding the right amount of capacity to purchase and the right hardware and software configuration to use to get the most benefit from your IT investment.
TeamQuest Software Addresses Right-sizing Hardware and Software Purchases
TeamQuest software provides you with objective, accurate analysis for justifying and right-sizing hardware and software purchases. Using TeamQuest Analyzer and TeamQuest Predictor, you can examine different configurations to find the most cost-effective solution over a specified period of time that best satisfies service levels and business needs.
TeamQuest Analyzer enables you to do in-depth analysis of resource utilization. Using powerful workload processing where all system activities can be analyzed based on the application, service, or business unit that initiated them, TeamQuest Analyzer provides detailed insight into the characteristics and behaviors of your existing systems from a business service point of view.
TeamQuest Predictor adds the ability to predict the outcome of potential future scenarios. Starting from a viable baseline from an existing system or from a pilot of a new system, a wide spectrum of what-if scenarios can be quickly evaluated using analytic modeling. Without having to reconfigure a single piece of hardware or software at the server, the following changes can be evaluated:
