Use Cases

The Plan View is where you create What-If scenarios that are especially useful for system architects, system administrators, and capacity planners.


System architects can use the Plan View to investigate how to expand the physical and virtual inventory to the best effect. A scenario can indicate how much new hardware to add, how to distribute VMs among clusters of hosts, and whether components of the proposed network will be over- or under-utilized.


System administrators can use the Plan View to answer immediate questions. If you expect a surge in utilization or demand, you can run a scenario to explore how to deploy new VMs that perform specific functions.


The following sections show example scenarios that can address these use cases:


Planning Use Case: Increasing Virtual Load under Existing Constraints


Planning Use Case: Decommission a Cluster or Datacenter
