Summary

Our Infrastructure Services (IS) organization at World Wide Technology helps customers with deployments of new technologies and solutions into production.  They helped a major Enterprise company refresh and consolidate their data centers. They developed a phased approach that enabled a reliable and seamless migration against an extremely tight deadline with no allowance for downtime. 

In order to make sure downtime would be almost non-existent or as limited as possible, our IS organization used the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) to test out the steps of the data center migration before attempting in the approved maintenance windows.

There are several aspects to the data center consolidation that will be covered which include:

  • Cisco ACI Multi-Pod framework (Initial Phase)
  • Workload Migration Framework
  • F5 Virtual IP Migration
  • Gateway Migration
  • Circuit Cut

If you have a data center consolidation or migration coming up and want to gather more ideas on what to expect, please keep reading in the ATC Insight Section.
