[Review]: Intel Data Center Modernization Estimator
What’s Intel Data Center Modernization Estimator?
Intel Data Center Modernization Estimator is an online tool for project server sizing. Based on Intel IT’s methodology for determining the appropriate server sizing for our scale-up enterprise resource planning (ERP) environment, this tool allows you to enter data about your existing data center environment and evaluate the optimal servers for your project life cycle.
This tool models the combined effects of compute, memory and I/O to understand the overall implications for server sizing and selection to meet IT service level agreements.
It incorporates the required number of servers to address projected workloads, use of SSD vs HDD, migration to faster Ethernet adapters, and the possible freeing of labor resources to address other critical IT business needs.
This tool will help you to sizing servers for any project with physical or virtual servers.
