As a migration partner to Fujitsu, we were approached to carry out a migration for their client Mizuho, a leading provider of financial services and solutions to corporate clients. They required,
- A physical migration of 7 devices during phase 1 of 20
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 De-racked before being individually wrapped in anti-static bubble wrap and 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 Stevenage, 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 Re-racked in line destination rack plans.
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;
- Working with our ‘Sales Department’ to gather information.
- Early engagement with the client, ensuring that scope of work was agreed well ahead of the migration.
- Managed expectations through regular and clear communication leading up to the migration.
- Working well with our ‘Operations Department’ to ensure that the correct resources are allocated to the project.
