Description of Project: Executive Summary The main focus of the M-2 project is to build a second data center (M-2) to supplement FRU’s main data center M-1. M-2 will be constructed within a pre- existing office building located in Cape Town, South Africa and will achieve three main requirements. First it will act as a fully functional back up to M-1; it will retain all of FRU’s digital information, and will provide a test environment for any and all of FRU’s applications. This initial phase of the project will deal with the scope of the project and the overall planning and organization of functional and technical requirements needed to make the M-2 project an overall success. Collecting Requirements To gain insight into the technical and functional requirements needed for the M-2 project, we will base many of our technical needs upon the M-1 data center. In addition, the CIO will help complete a technical analysis of critical requirements required for the Cape Town based M-2 data center. Verification To verify the deliverables of the M-2 project, documents such as the project charter along with technical and functions requirements will be handed off to major project stakeholders/sponsors such as FRU’s CEO, CIO, and Director of 3

    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.
