Given your current application architecture, where do you believe your current performance bottleneck is? What is your current strategy to manage spikes in usage that could result in reduced performance?
 
Virtualization
 
Question 4: VMWare
Are any elements of your technical implementation incompatible with VMware vSphere 4?
Yes      No
If yes, please list those elements that are incompatible.
 
Question 5: Virtual Configuration
 
The following question is for capacity planning only and will assist the CAO as it designs the new web architecture. You will be provided additional opportunities to submit a more formal request once the new architecture has been implemented.
