Data Center Migration
Data center migrations typically fall into two categories, based on the companies acceptable level of risk. The first category, where a company physically moving equipment from one location to another with the least amount of downtime and risk. The second category, the company typically builds out a new facility with modern equipment and migrates applications from the old environment to the new one. Vinci Consulting works with the IT experts inside your company to develop a comprehensive multi-pronged data center migration strategy. Understanding the current state of your operations is vital to determining the required scope of work and effort. For example, dependencies among applications, servers, storage devices and networks are analyzed and evaluated to develop logical bundles for relocation. Application bundling and determining where applications should ultimately reside are also key steps, and moving some or all to the cloud would be a consideration.
In planning a data center migration detailed plans are developed and documented including move day plans containing information like application start-up and shut down procedures, detailed resource plans indicating specific tasks and who's responsible for them, where resources will be located, and the timing of events and activities.
Vinci Consulting has the data center migration experience and capabilities to minimize downtime, reduce the potential for human error and provide stand-alone services or an end-to-end program that restores operational performance on your schedule.
