Before embarking on the journey of a data center migration project, many customers need to answer some basic IT logistics questions in order to prevent false starts with their migration project. Those basic questions include:
- How long will this data center migration take?
- What will this project cost overall?
- What items or issues in the IT environment should be addressed BEFORE starting the data center migration?
- What things appear to be in good shape as we start this project?
- How ready are our various technology teams to do the actual data center migration? (Network, Compute, Storage, Security, etc.)
- How ready are our application teams?
- What other projects, goals and business plans will possibly impact the data center migration project?
- Who are the stakeholders that should be involved?
- Are there any external vendor implications?
Based upon the answers to these questions, a proper path to beginning a data center migration project will begin to emerge.
Altus Technologies Corporation has developed a “Data Center Migration Road Map” to help you prepare for your upcoming migration project. Using our templates and our many years of experience, we can make sure that each of these questions above (and more!) are answered, and that a correct strategy is developed to allow a smooth start to your migration project.
