      • Physical Servers
      • Virtual Machines
      • Virtual Disks
      • Network Disk
      • Backup and restore process for the above
      • Ongoing requests which might lead to new hardware procurement.
        • increase in disk sizes
        • increase in allocation on network disk to store images
