Is it for me?

PlateSpin Recon is a workload profiling, analysis and planning solution that provides intelligence, visual analysis and forecasting for virtualisation initiatives.

What does it do?

PlateSpin is designed with flexibility in mind. It collects inventory and performance data remotely, with no need to touch datacentre servers. It carries out sophisticated analysis of resources, workloads and utilisation trends. It’s easily exportable to a number of formats including HTML, PDF, Word, CSV, Excel or images for flexible report creation. And it can predict future workloads and resource utilisation based on historical trends to better plan for server consolidation and infrastructure growth, and enable more proactive systems management.
