Capacity management at any scale has many moving pieces and requires a range of activities from capacity forecasting to emergency response. Capacity issues can directly impact your service scalability, performance and availability. Lead time to acquire new capacity can make a capacity management plan as important as your service monitoring. Being prepared can help ensure a great customer experience even during difficult times.

In this talk, we will present a comprehensive set of activities necessary to execute a capacity management plan for a storage service of any size. We will discuss learnings from Microsoft Azure Storage - one of the largest and fastest growing storage systems on the planet and how SREs used code to proactively scale and remove complex manual effort and toil through automation. The work here has resulted in an improved customer experience, better work/life balance and reduced cost.
