How to Move a Data Center

 

Using a tool like TDS TransitionManagerTM, gather and analyze the inventory information driving the overall relocation strategy.  Perform an inventory of all virtual and physical servers and other assets and determine how each will be handled (migrate, move, virtualize, retire, etc.)

 

  • Complete an application inventory while assigning all applications a Critical Index Factor (CIF) and acceptable downtime window

  • Determine the interdependencies between applications, servers,storage, etc. and generate dependency maps

 

Data Center Move Strategy

Ensure the strategy accelerates move events, reduces planned downtime and minimizes the risk of unplanned outages.  The strategy should determine the destination environment for all assets (new data center, cloud, retire, etc.)

  • Develop the move strategy based upon the Current State Analysis

  • Assign applications and servers to move bundles

  • Utilize tools such as TDS CostModelerTM to understand financial impact of migration to the cloud

  • Analyze and understand all non-financial reasons before virtualizing or moving to the cloud
