System Center Capacity Planner 2007 RTMs

The good news is that SCCP has been released AND it is now free for anyone to download.

The bad news is that it is only for Exchange 2007 with SCOM coming later – Q2 and SharePoint shortly.

The announcement:

System Center Capacity Planner 2007 RTMs

The product team is pleased to announce the release of Microsoft System Center Capacity Planner (SCCP) 2007! SCCP 2007 is a pre-deployment capacity planning and post-deployment change analysis solution for Microsoft Server products including Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. It employs state of the art modelling technology to bring unprecedented functionality and flexibility to the process of performance analysis and planning of distributed application deployments. It provides Information Technology professionals with the tools and guidance to deploy efficiently, while planning for the future by allowing for “what-if” analyses.

The new version adds the following new capabilities:

. Application model for Exchange Server 2007

. Extensibility with new models from Microsoft, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. A model for System Center Operations Manager 2007 will be available soon.

. New, more powerful deployment wizards deliver unprecedented ease of use

. Support for 64-bit processor architectures

. Comprehensive reporting of disk IO and storage utilizations

. Increased flexibility in customizing server usage profiles

Unlike the previous version, SCCP 2007 doesn’t require a Microsoft TechNet Plus or MSDN Premium subscription, and is available for anyone to download now on the Microsoft Download Center. Please visit our website to learn more about SCCP 2007.

When will Capacity Models be available?

. Exchange 2007 Model: This model ships with SCCP 2007 and is available NOW and included with the current download on the Microsoft Download Center.

. Operations Manager 2007: This model is not yet available and the beta is closed. The final model is expected to ship in the 2nd quarter of calendar year 2008. Customers seeking capacity guidance should use the OpsMgr 2007 Performance and Scale Guide now available on the Download Center.

. SharePoint 2007 Model: This model is not yet available but will be posted to TechNet shortly.

NOTE: If you already have installed SCCP 2007 beta, you have to uninstall it first before installing RTM.
