I have a sudden need to comprehensively document a moderately complex platform, and break it down into service and application components, and describe how these services can be migrated and are provided into a new platform which is cloud based.
Obviously in both a desire for brevity, and a desire to comply with the rules of the site, I am not looking to get into discussion about benefits and types of documentation, just to capture the basic list of "facts" that manage a generic application stack.
My initial off-the-top-of-my-head list is as follows.
Package and update monitoring
Backup & Recovery
Bare metal Deployment
Upgrade & Package mngt
Internal DNS & DHCP
OS level metrics
Service level metrics
External URL monitoring
OS level statistics
If there is anything missing, I would be keen to identify it.
ps I would also be interested in excel or google docs templates to track these items.
