A lack of proper planning can often lead to a poorly performing system. By performing a proper sizing, the right hardware can be allocated for the right job. This chapter provided information on how to perform sizing and capacity planning for the Oracle VM Server farm, along with information on how to monitor the performance of the VM Server Farm. (Performance monitoring is covered throughout this book as well.)
In the next chapter you will learn how to install the Oracle VM Server. Later chapters discuss how to install and configure the Oracle VM Manager and OEM Grid Control Plugin for Oracle VM.
