Project Charter for M-2 Data Center Page 3 1. INTRODUCTION 1. Project Description The intent of this project is to develop a new data center, named M-2, as a mirrored data warehouse to provide instantaneous business continuity in the event of a disaster with the current data center M-1. The new data center will be built in Sao Paolo, Brazil to provide a higher level of certainty that in the event of a disaster at least one of the data centers will be operational. It is intended to have three times the storage and processing capacity of M-1 in order to handle all digital record retention, act as a test venue for application debugging prior to rollout, and provide future expansion capacity for the next 2 decades. 2. Background In the past several years, Finances-R-Us (FRU) has experienced phenomenal growth and is beginning to outgrow the main data center in the Midwest of the U.S. Further, FRU has not complied with the Sarbanes Oxley Laws. 3. Business Objectives and Success Criteria The additional data center will put FRU in complance with Sarbanes Oxley Laws because the additional data center will provide a viable disaster, recovery and back-up option. The objective is to reduce the expense of data center duplication while still providing operational support. By building in Brazil the building and operational expense can be reduced by 25% due to the exchange rate between the U.S. and Brazil. The project will be successful when the datacenter building construction is completed, the servers are in place, and networked to M-1 in a mirrored configuration. 4. Stakeholders Stakeholder Major Benefits Attitudes Win Conditions Constraints Project Sponsor Compliance with Sarbanes Oxley Laws Positive Having an in place disaster, recovery and business continuity plan Cost, Schedule Project Manager Bonus for on-time or early completion Positive Completing the project on time Cost, Schedule, and Resources Internal users No work will be lost due to the server going down Positive Not having to re- enter data External Users Always having their account information available to them Positive No server / site downtime 2. 2.

Project Charter for M-2 Data Center Page 4 The M-2 data center will function as a back up to the M-1 data center. M-2 will have complete records retention of all data recorded at M-1. In the event that the M-1 data center shuts down, M-2 will take over and will be able to allow the FRU to continue functioning until M-1 is repaired. In addition, the M-2 site will serve as a testing area for any new software applications that FRU would like to test out before implementing into the company and the M-1 data center. The previous functions comprise what the M-2 data centers purpose is.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
