eBay Inc. is a multinational e-commerce corporation based in San Jose, California that facilitates consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales through its website. They approached Technimove to;
- Physically migrate 5 server devices
Planning and Project Management
Our migration methodology is designed to focus on minimising downtime, reducing risks and guaranteeing the efficient delivery of server migration projects. A key element of this process is ensuring that your project manager has prepared for the challenges and utilised the available resources in the most effective way.
On the day of the migration, equipment was backed up and gracefully shut down, by the client, ahead of the Technimove Team’s arrival. Technimove engineers began by preparing all packaging material required for the migration. Equipment was then individually wrapped in anti-static bubble wrap before being placed into purpose built, foam lined, server flight cases.
Flight cases were secured in Technimove’s Mercedes GPS Tracked, solid sided vehicles before travelling directly to the destination site in Dublin, where the Technimove team unloaded flight cases and moved them into position within the new facility.
The onsite client contact signed an equipment itinerary confirming that the devices had arrived at the destination facility before the devices were unpacked and left as instructed, non-racked.
The Technimove engineers then hand over equipment to the client for the power up and testing to commence.
Technimove ensured that the migration was delivered and achieved all of the goals for the project. From the very beginning, the procedure we had put in place through our project management processes ensured the safe migration of their servers.
As a result, we delivered above and beyond expectations by
- Early engagement with the client, ensuring that scope of work was agreed ahead of the migration.
- Managed expectations through regular contact leading up to the migration eBay – Data Centre Team Leader said the following:
“Hi Daniel, the equipment was safely delivered to our other site and on time, thank you for your services it’s much appreciated”.
