How to do Capacity Management in the Cloud


Speaking about System (on Cloud)  Management by Exception - the main topic of this blog - the  anomaly (exception) detection become extremely important technique as based on that video there is apparent shift from protectiveness (classical capacity management) to reactivates. So  the SETDS method works  well applying now to cloud capacity/performance data.

NCA CMG meetup meeting 12/6/2017 (Capacity Management on Cloud vs. on-Prem and z/OS Performance HOT Topics)



  • (0:02:17) Capacity Planning for Pervasive Encryption with zBNA - Kathy Walsh, IBM Distinguished Engineer - Abstract: This session will discuss the capacity planning methods and tools available to gain a better understanding of the impact of a pervasive encryption implementation strategy. The session will discuss the system requirements necessary to build a capacity plan and will review the steps necessary to complete the planning. Information on both DFSMS data set encryption and CF structure encryption will be shared. The capability to estimate the capacity impact on current and future technology such as a z14 processor will be covered.
  • (01:08:00) Sponsor presentation: Talend | Open Source Cloud Integration Abstract: Talend is a next-generation leader in cloud and big data integration software. With Talend, you can spin up and spin down EMR clusters so you never waste resources and add unneeded expenses to your AWS account. At scale, this can save organizations millions. 
    Presenters: Karim Sharara (Account Executive)  and Vincent Wilmot (Senior Solutions Engineer)
  • (02:09:00 - Partial Capture) Is Capacity Management Needed in the Cloud? - Kevin McLaughlin (https://cmgimpact.com/speakers/kevin-mclaughlin/) Capital One director (he will repeat his Velocity and CMG imPACT’17 conferences presentation) - Abstract: The cloud holds the promise of bottomless capacity, available instantly. Recently, Capital One has been shifting a significant portion of its workload to the public cloud. Kevin McLaughlin explores what capacity management looks like in the cloud, which old concepts still apply, which should be retired, and what new metrics become important in the process. Kevin also covers the importance of performance management and outlines what needs to be monitored as workloads transition to the cloud and what to monitor once a workload is fully in the cloud, as well as considerations for ensuring the legacy environment maintains sufficient capacity during the transition.

Presenter bio: Kevin McLaughlin has 15 years of experience in financial services technology, primarily in roles related to capacity and performance management. Kevin spent eight years on the business side of banking, where he held various analytic roles including management of Capital One's statistical model governance process. He currently serves as the director of Capital One's technology capacity management team and still serves as a model risk officer for the bank's analytic models. Kevin has a BS in ag economics from Virginia Tech and an MBA with a concentration in MIS from George Mason University.
