Orlando, FL, United States, 2010/11/04 - Metron, leaders in Capacity and Performance Management will be at CMG’10 in Orlando, Florida December 5-10 and will be presenting on Capacity Planning and Modeling, currently a hot topic.
Metron, will be presenting on Capacity Planning and Modeling, currently a hot topic as reflected in Larry Dignan’s statement on his recent ZDNet blog: ‘The message : IT capacity management is hot’
Adam Grummitt, author of four books on performance tuning and capacity planning, will be presenting a session entitled ‘Why do we Capacity Model in the UK, Performance/Test Report in the USA & Resource Monitor in Japan?’
Adam’s colleague Jamie Baker, a Senior Consultant at Metron, is hosting a session on vSphere called ‘vSphere Performance & Capacity Overview’
Metron is best known for its market leading Athene capacity management software which provides support for users of all platforms, both physical and virtual.
Metron also offers a variety of capacity management services. From ITIL accredited capacity management training through advice and audit of capacity processes to detailed technical problem solving, Metron has services to support any or all of an organizations needs irrespective of whose capacity management software they are using.
Andrew Smith, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Metron commented ‘We are a leading capacity management specialist and have been in the market for over 25 years. We believe that effective Capacity Management is an integral part of the IT process and should be central to the plans of Companies who are leveraging new technology, particularly in the areas of Virtualization and Cloud Computing.’
In a Forrester study on the Cloud, commissioned on behalf of CA, Capacity Management was identified as the top operational concern – with a large proportion of participants stating that Capacity planning and management were particularly difficult in the Cloud.
In addition, earlier this year Metron announced a partnership with Correlsense. It maintains that the combination of Correlsense SharePath and Metron Athene provides a complete Capacity Management solution that allows organizations to understand the performance of both their core system and critical services. By combining business forecast information with infrastructure performance metrics IT organizations can predict whether they have sufficient capacity to meet the needs of the business at both the component and service levels.
Andrew Smith, for Metron continued: ‘Combining Sharepath’s business transaction management views of complex applications spanning multiple processing points with Athene’s cross-platform modeling capabilities takes capacity planning from a resource level in ITIL terms to a service-wide view. Users can now plan their future infrastructure requirements from a business rather than purely technical perspective.’
Metron will be showcasing Athene, it’s Capacity, Performance and Modeling software and can be found at Booth 301
