1. A system for determining placement of source computer systems on target computer systems, the system configured to execute operations causing the system to:

  • collect data for a collection of computer systems, the collection of computer systems comprising a plurality of source systems and a plurality of target systems;

    determine a placement of at least one source system from the collection of computer systems on at least one target system from the collection of computer systems by employing the following operations;

    evaluate compatibility between a specific source system from the plurality of source systems and a specific target system from the plurality of target systems by evaluating one or more rules that operate against attributes or data relating to the source and target systems being evaluated;

    evaluate compatibility between the specific source system from the plurality of source systems and one or more other source systems either already placed on the specific target system, or being evaluated for placement onto the specific target system, to determine if the specific source system can be placed with those other source systems on the specific target system, by evaluating one or more rules that operate against attributes or data relating to the source systems;

    evaluate compatibility between the specific source system and the specific any onc of the plurality of target system by evaluating the impact on resource utilization of the specific target system of placing the specific source system on the specific target system, in combination with the one or more other source systems, either already placed on the specific target system, or being evaluated for placement onto the specific target system; and

    issue instructions to place the at least one source system on the at least one target system in accordance with the determined placement.
