Data Center Modernization is a Complicated and Extensive Process.
Here’s what needs to be done at each stage of migration:
Analyze your data center
Any data center consists of multiple moving parts that work together and may affect each other. Besides, your data center will last at least 3-5 years before you can find a better place for your business needs in the future.
Aspects to consider:
- Will the data center have enough cooling/power for your current and future requirements?
- How far are your customers located?
- What are the most optimal carriers you may need?
- Will your data center provider have enough capacity for future expansions?
- Is data center resistant to природным катаклизмам?
At this point, we can help to build financial reports after analyzing your current and new contracts such as:
- When does the current contract expire?
- What’s an estimate of the migration?
- What is a possible impact on your business
Design your data center and core.
After you make an initial decision to migrate, it’s about time to make initial plan
As the first move, we will install racks, power distribution units.
- Design your footprint and power structure
- Design your cure network structure.
- Detailed plan of power, servers, network installations
Now, your data center installation has racks installed and at that point, it’s time to install your core network and run copper and fibers. Depending on budget, goal, and possible habits, network structure can be :
- Distribution core switches and Top of Rack (ToR) switches
- Core switches and fabric extenders.
- Chassis design with mixes of switches.
Our network engineers will design or work with your engineers on every step of migration . We will make the very detailed schedule to migrate or install your servers. And schedule will depend on your servers’ data flow to minimize impact of the migration (or installation) process.
Interconnect Your Data Centers (optional)
If you’re reallocating your data center, it’s a l a long process and components of your enterprise application still need to talk to each other. And we always try to connect the old and new data center to each other using WAN, LAN, MPLS technologies to organize temporal wide network covering both data centers. Once migration is over, this network can be disassembled. This step reduces the possible impact on your business
