Lifesize Capacity Planner

Lifesize offers a simple, scalable and ready-to-go video conferencing solution featuring powerful applications that are quick to provision, customizable and instantly accessible from one common interface. With Lifesize applications you get full control over the feature set that best suits your needs. Available in bundles that are right-sized for your business, the Lifesize applications include everything you need to host multiparty video conference calls anywhere, anytime, and on any device. If you need greater flexibility, each app can also be deployed as virtual machine software on your VMware® or Hyper-V®. In order to help IT administrators plan and manage their hardware resources for their deployments, Lifesize created the Lifesize Capacity Planner.

The Lifesize Capacity Planner tells you:

  • What applications can run together and at what capacity
  • Maximum capacity limits for each Lifesize UVC application
  • When you need to deploy a new virtual machine or hardware appliance
Open the Lifesize UVC Capacity Planner with button below. View the Capacity Planner

To use, select a platform and adjust the slider bars or use the arrow keys on your keyboard. Numerical values are listed, as well as color coding indicating the following:

Gold Available The amount of reserve capacity available for allocation.
Green Consumed The amount of resources already consumed.
Gray Unavailable The amount of resources consumed by other UVC applications.
Red Over allocated When you have exceeded a suggested limit that puts the resource at risk of failure. For VMware® or Hyper-V® instances, only the numerical values turn red to indicate over allocation.

For the Lifesize hardware, horizontal hardware capacity indicators appear for CPU, RAM, Network, and Disk I/O resources. These graphical depictions are not available for VMware or Hyper-V deployments; however, numerical values estimating the capacity of the underlying hardware appear in these cases so you can provision accordingly. These calculations are based on the minimum hardware specifications for a VM instance listed in hardware prerequisites for virtual machines in the Lifesize UVC Platform Installation and Deployment Guide.
