No More System Center Capacity Manager

The OpsMgr Product Team have just announced that SCCP has been discontinued.

Microsoft System Center Capacity Planner (SCCP) is formally being discontinued, effective immediately, as it no longer supports the current versions of Microsoft applications it was designed for.  The most recent version, SCCP 2007, is no longer available.   No new versions of this standalone capacity planning tool, as well as any new or updated application capacity planning models, will be developed.

As an alternative to SCCP 2007 for capacity planning, we encourage you to make use of the following resources:

We recognize that capacity planning/management is an important IT systems management discipline.  We will continue to evaluate how capacity planning/management functionality fits best in our System Center portfolio.

This comes as no surprise to me. I did a post on why I did not think it was up to the job (May 200). The concept was great but the execution did not come up to scratch. Back to the sizing spreadsheet. Well I never actually left it. šŸ˜‰

    AGREED!

    I figure they will use a newer version of the Service Level Dashboard 2.0 solution into SharePoint 2010. Then this will turn into their capacity management solution as a subset to SLA which makes sense from an ITIL perspective.

  2. I hope to learn more from you.

    Hello,
    I know that SCCP 2007 is discontinued, however it is a prerequisite for installing the Sharepoint installer. Does anyone have a copy of SCCP 2007 V2.0 that could be sent to my email? Thanks.
