Data Center Migration
Client: Financial Institution
The client, whose IT services are provided by a large multinational outsourcer, needed to close one data center and move it to another due to a change in supplier.
Due to the nature of its business and the confidentiality of its data, security, integrity and availability issues were at the heart of the client’s concerns.
In addition to the migration, the client’s equipment had to be upgraded (modernization and automation) and the outsourcer had to set up the infrastructure to accommodate the end-customer’s data.
Since the virtualization technologies used were new, some activities had to be performed outside of business hours so as not to affect the systems in production.
- Migration of critical and confidential information
- Very short time frame to complete the migration without impacting users
- Several different teams had to work together between ESI, the outsourcer and the end client
- Some of the systems to be migrated were not in production
