3. Capacity Planning > . . . But Trust Your Eyes More than the Math

. . . But Trust Your Eyes More than the Math

It is easy, however, to plan too much. Requirements change and new technologies are making older ones obsolete, so you can’t know for sure what you’ll need in a year or two. It is a good idea to choose a few pieces of flexible, scalable equipment of adequate rated capacity and try them out together, knowing you can add capacity or alter the architecture as you collect real-world data and as new alternatives become available. Choose components that “play nice” with products from other manufacturers, rather than proprietary components. Starting this way has the substantial advantage of giving you continuous feedback on the performance and reliability of live, interacting equipment.
