SharePoint Sizing and Capacity Calculator
Simplify the planning and design of your Collaboration environment
For customers considering a SharePoint Managed Service, the Avanade SharePoint Calculator helps simplify the planning, design, system configuration and storage layout for a SharePoint 2010 farm. The calculator also assists with the assimilation of SharePoint into existing infrastructure by identifying all current and future usage patterns. This valuable tool can help prevent errors around capacity planning and its impact on existing infrastructure.
Most enterprises have a lot of questions and uncertainty around how they plan to use and evolve their SharePoint environment. This, coupled with a lack of detailed SharePoint knowledge, makes it hard to think through all the variables required to correctly size SharePoint capacity.
So the Avanade team of SharePoint experts used their vast system experience to incorporate all the recommendations outlined in a myriad of Microsoft TechNet articles and consulted with a number of other industry experts to develop a one-of-a-kind calculator that’s optimized for all hardware and storage platforms.
The calculator uses your organization’s answers to a series of questions relating to current and/or proposed usage plans, including version, number of users, MySite usage, deployment type, user quotas, use of Search and more to extrapolate and model growth, sizing and capacity frameworks on a yearly basis.
By investing up front to create a robust managed SharePoint environment, Avanade can help to correctly model the SharePoint farm for both today and tomorrow. Customers can be sure they’re designing a robust collaboration environment that can be counted on to deliver high availability and high-speed access no matter what the intended usage model.
