The Challenge

A migration partner to Aimes, we were approached to carry out a migration for their client Merseyside NHS AIMES, who’s aim is to ensure technology and innovation is used effectively as an enabler to better health and care. They required,

  • 8 devices to be migrated
  • Technimove to be responsible for dedicated cables only

The Solution

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.

The Migration

On the day of the migration, Technimove engineers arrived onsite 30 minutes prior to the start of the migration to sign in and prepare packaging material.

Once onsite, the devices were handed over to Technimove to systematically Decommission, De-rack and wrap in anti-static bubble wrap for protection, before being placed into purpose built, foam lined, server flight cases.

Once the flight cases were secured in the pre-fueled GPS tracked Mercedes sprinters, Technimove travelled directly to the destination site via the safest and shortest pre-planned route.

Once at Kilby House, Liverpool, the equipment was unpacked and installed in line with the destination rack plans. Once racked, devices were Recommissioned in line with the patching schedules.

Technimove undertook final checks before handing the equipment back over the client for the testing to commence ahead of schedule.

The Result

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;

  • Ensuring all dedicated cables were labelled up correctly and patched accordingly at the destination.
  • Reviewing the rack plans and printing server labels, showing the rack and ‘u’ positions for both the collection/destination.

 

Both our partner and end user were happy with our efficient and professional approach to the migration, and even more so with the result.
