I am interested in how you make any capacity planning for your infrastructure , what you consider, and how do you present it  to your managers. I want to start making something in this direction and I am wondering  what to say to our managers, and to consider.

You have to assess the current resources being used and how their usage increases and then extrapolate if the current increase usage continues for three/five years, then double the end result. If the rate of resource use grows rapidly, you should triple rather than double.

I was looking designing for performance/capacity planning a few weeks back, and didn't find any simple answers (either it's a dark art or practitioners don't like to share their methods ;-)

However, I found the following links interesting:
