Capacity Planning for VMware Cloud

The Capacity Planning for VMware Cloud report evaluates workloads in your on-premises virtual infrastructure and estimates the resources needed to run these workloads in the VMware Cloud.

The report analyzes VM configuration and historical performance (CPU, storage and memory resources consumed by VMs and VM templates running on vSphere/Hyper-V hosts) and provides estimation of the VMware Cloud hosting options required to support your infrastructure in the cloud.

Calculation of the necessary cloud hosting services is based on the VMware Cloud specifications.
