As part of this service we will seamlessly relocate your Data Center to a new facility through a well-defined process. The following approach options are evaluated based on the customer requirement.
- Lift and Shift: Move the existing IT equipment’s from one location to another location, where it will perform in its current state.
- Parallel Cut: A parallel environment will be setup and data will be synced on a periodic basis to the new environment. UAT will be performed on this environment before the final cutover is performed.
- Flash Cut: A high availability environment will be setup in the new location. The two cluster nodes will be separated through a geo-cluster. This methodology will be suggested for application which cannot tolerate any downtime during relocation.
Yashasvi will ensure that the entire relocation exercise is seamless through a range of structured activities which include:
- Documentation of the existing IT landscape
- Classification of server (Critical, Non-critical)
- Backup of critical data
- Documented Layout of target environment
- Document the move groups based on criticality and application landscape
- UAT performed after the relocation exercise/li>
