This article does not cover any other aspect of the DR setup.
Production Server Information
Production Servers can either be Windows or Linux. Please refer to SafeHaven 5.0 Use Case and Support Matrix for more information.
Gather the following information for the servers you want to protect:

a. Provisioned Storage for Windows
b. Used Storage for Linux

Apart from this other information regarding Domain Controllers, DNS Servers, transaction rate of SQL Servers, etc. have to be gathered as it impacts the overall disaster recovery setup. CenturyLink's resource will provide guidance on this.
