HPE Deployment, Configuration & Data Migration - Pan European Investment Bank
The company’s legacy iSCSI SAN infrastructure was replaced with the latest 3PAR storage from Hewlett Packard Enterprise – in combination with the deployment of new blade servers using Flex-Fabric technology.
The data migration followed the deployment/configuration of the new Virtual Machine hosts and SAN Storage. The host data was migrated to the new volumes on the HPE 3PAR Disk Arrays using the most appropriate method for each server, with downtime kept to a minimum.
Migration planning was undertaken and confirmed with the customer project team during a workshop. Initially a small number of low risk migrations were performed and, upon success the customer migrated all remaining Virtual Machines (VMs) over a period of weeks.
Once all VMs had been migrated from the old cluster there was the opportunity to facilitate the migration of API VMs. Cooperation with customer’s systems admin team while supporting their business critical IT infrastructure are key for the telent data migration team.
We also led the engagement in terms of planning, guidance, defining processes, documentation and migration methodologies throughout.
