Remember when you only had a handful of servers or a single mainframe to manage? Back in those days, we also had teams of experts working on capacity and performance management. Now, one person is managing 1000’s of servers, at least one private cloud, virtualization and more with changes being applied to the system every day, if not every hour. It isn’t possible to manage as you have in the past – you need to change the game, eliminating manual processes wherever possible. Learn how to work smarter and have more fun on the job by letting go of the past and venturing boldly into the future of capacity planning. Build a vision and the management skills to create it.
“Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”Hunter S. Thompson, Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century
