Can your company afford to have significant down time or data loss during a system changeover, infrastructure migration or server migration? Data migrations are a complicated process whether they involve a change or transfer of OS, files, database, web, e-mail or hardware. To reduce the risk of data loss or extended down time, a system changeover requires significant planning and effort. Complete Systems Design is experienced in SQL server migrations, Exchange server migrations, file server migrations, IIS server migrations and FTP server migrations. We can assist whether it is a partial network migration or an entire infrastructure migration.
Proper planning requires setting up the new equipment in advance with a standard 72 hour burn-in period to ensure system reliability. During that period, it is essential that security functions specific to the new hardware are thoroughly investigated. Although most security should be assigned via an authentication server, some systems may have used machine-specific security policies, which will not transfer to the new hardware since most machine-specific policies are rarely documented and will require significant investigation.
A complete backup should be performed on the old system as well as a full restore of the data on the existing server before the migration is ready to be implemented. Just before the new machine is installed, a new backup should be performed for any last minute changes that may have occurred during the testing.
