Projects are a new feature in vROps 6.0 that replace the old "what-if" functionality from vCOps 5.x. A project is an upcoming change to your environment that affects either the supply or the demand (or both) of capacity. Projects allow capacity modeling to help an administrator set up hypothetical scenarios such as adding or removing virtual machines and hosts from a cluster. These scenarios can then be used to determine how a pipeline of incoming organizational projects will affect the time remaining calculation. An example of the projects screen is shown as follows
Although projects may be similar to the "what-if" scenarios, it is not just a small upgrade. Projects are a complete overhaul of the scenario modeling capability and their features and improvements include the following:
Projects are persistent and can be saved, and as such they are no longer removed when you logout
Projects can be shared among vROps' different users
A project can be set to occur at a future date and time...
