Co-Lo Migration London, UK

A successful migration of vital data centre equipment

THE CHALLENGE

The investment banking client needed to consolidate its IT equipment, in particular migrating two data centres within a co- location facility into a single newly-provisioned area. This needed to be done over a series of weekends so that downtime could be minimised.

OUR SOLUTION

The client partnered with us to conduct a full asset and cabling audit, migration and handover of around 60 devices, including EMP storage racks, HP blade chassis, large Cisco multi-blade switches and data centre-class servers. Our migration teams worked alongside the client’s own engineers to successfully de- cable, relocate and re-cable all devices, according to the meticulous plan established in advance.

THE OUTCOMES

The migration was completed without incident, thanks to our joint efforts in planning, experience and migration methods. As a result, the client now benefits from:

  • Site management improvements
  • Greater power, space and cooling efficiency
  • Room to scale up their data centre for refresh andupgrade needs as required
  • Improved cable management
