HelpSystems (now Fortra) Introduces Powerful IT Capacity Planning Solution

Posted on January 9, 2018 | Automation

Minneapolis, MN, January 9, 2018—Fortra today announced the release of Vityl Capacity Management, an easy and automated way for any IT organization to do capacity planning. Capacity planning ensures organizations have the right resources—like servers and systems—to meet their current and future needs.

Vityl Capacity Management is software for IT organizations to do capacity management proactively. The capacity planning component helps both experienced capacity planners and those new to the discipline build capacity plans with ease.

“Businesses increasingly depend on IT to support new initiatives,” said Chris Heim, CEO of Fortra. “That means IT needs to be agile in introducing new technology while maintaining service levels. Our goal was to deliver a solution that simplifies the capacity planning process.”

“Many organizations who haven’t done capacity planning before want to get started with it,” said Scott Adams, Chief Product Owner at Fortra. “Vityl Capacity Management makes capacity planning accessible to organizations who haven’t done it before—and makes it easier for experienced capacity planners to do more in less time.”

While the solution is simple on the outside, it’s powerful on the inside. Vityl Capacity Management is built on queuing network theory, which guarantees accuracy in even the most complicated of capacity predictions.

All IT organizations need to do is connect systems and servers to the software. Then they can run what-if scenarios on things like projected business growth in three months. The software will show where there might be risk of a system going down or a server exceeding capacity. Plus, the software gives advice on how to mitigate that risk.

Vityl Capacity Management is the only solution on the market that offers easy capacity planning and trustworthy advice for acting on that capacity plan.
