   Capacity Planning    If difficulty can be correlated to success, then capacity planning must be the most difficult task for the CIO today. Nobody appears to be capable of accurately predicting future data center capacity requirements. That is because it is an impossible problem to solve. Integrated Design Group is the industry leader in this type of strategic capacity planning. Good capacity planning is not about guessing how much data center space or MEP capacity you might need three, five or ten years into the future.  More…
