CA Performance Management
Also known by its original codename "Polaris", CA's new performance management application is based on CA Performance Center (web based UI, often referred to as CA PC) and Data Aggregator (a.k.a. DA), including it's Data Repository and Data Collectors.
CA Infrastructure Management 2.0 (a.k.a. IM 2.0) - this entire text string is a product name. This is a composite product that includes CA Spectrum, CA Network Flow Analysis (a.k.a. NFA) and CA Performance Management
CA Infrastructure Performance 2.0 - same as above, minus CA Spectrum
"2.0" token in the product names above designates replacement of eHealth with new performance management. Think of Web 2.0 and MS Windows 2008 where the numbers don't literally translate to software versions. In the case of composite product the software version of individual components may differ. For example, in IM 2.0 Spectrum version is not aligned with CA PC version. When CA talks about release 2.2 they generally refer to the new Performance Management part of "IM 2.0", i.e. new CA PC and DA.
The new sizing tool is now available on support.ca.com, it is in MS Excel workbook format, you can modify some default parameters and it will suggest system size for you.

Tips and Tricks
Installing CAIM on CentOS
CentOS is not technically supported, but since it's supposed to be a binary equivalent of RHEL, it should work. Here are the tweaks we've found necessary (so far) to get it working on CentOS:
'O' means the tweak is has either not been tested or has been omitted during tests and no problems have arisen. 'X' means the tweak is required.
|Requirement||Command to issue||CentOS-6.3-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso||CentOS-6.3-x86_64-minimal.iso|
|glibc package||yum -y install glibc.i686||X||X|
|unzip package||yum -y install unzip||O||X|
|bc package||yum -y install bc||O||X|
|sudo package||yum -y install sudo||O||X|
|Change redhat-release to make CentOS look like RedHat||echo "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)" > /etc/redhat-release||X||X|
|Standard C libraries||yum -y install libstdc++-4.4.6-4.el6.i686||X||X|
|Disable SELINUX||cat /etc/selinux/config | sed -e 's/SELINUX=.*/SELINUX=disabled/' > /etc/selinux/config||O||X|
