Abstract -
Today`s IT world has a widespread infrastructure hosting various applications for internal requirements and customer requirements. Management of such distributed architecture becomes a pain with growing needs of a customer. Hence there needs to be a one-stop solution to consolidate all infrastructures at one centralized location. The planning consideration and the analysis that need to be followed by converting such distributed architecture to a centralized, onestop solution is being presented in this white paper. This white paper provides the recommendations for planning the migration upon existing physical servers to a Cloud Infrastructure. That includes the recommendations followed for Network and Compute capacity on the virtual environment.
