Data Center Migration


The team has been assigned to move a running, fielded application. The documentation may be incomplete or out of date, the “rock stars” that got the application initially have moved on to the next crisis and taken their knowledge with them. Furthermore, the current team has to collect all performance and security data to validate a successful migration.


The result is essentially a mini-development effort where the team has to reproduce the existing system in the new environment. This will require a lot of trial and error as the team iterates through the install and configuration of the new site. CONS3RT allows the team to constantly retry to rapidly narrow down the gaps. The access to tools for test and validation means that checks can be made real time rather than at the end.
