VMware capacity plan

Posted on 2008-11-04

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
We have 15 Hosts, 8 CPU's with 16GB RAM on each host. We are running over 50 Guests at this time. We are trying to figure out what else we can convert into VM in our existing setup w/o hurting the performance. We know about the capacity planner, but that would require us to hire a solution company, and we can't afford at this time. Are there any other tools available for us to analyze the performance of our existing setup and give us the results as to how many VM's we can add more... Thanks in advance.
