When planning the consolidation of multiple data centers into existing data center(s), it is often difficult to establish the various capacities and capabilities of each site’s physical infrastructure. This information is a key input to deciding which site(s) will become the “receiving” data center(s). This paper describes how to specify these requirements in standard terms and how to establish current conditions and future capabilities of each data center involved in a consolidation project.
