Data Center Relocations

Data Center Relocations are the physical movement of related IT equipment from one data center to another data center (or more).  This includes servers, storage devices and their associated SAN components, network components, cables (power and network), and all media required for the successful operation and maintenance of the environment(s) being relocated.

Data Center Relocations are highly complex, sensitive projects requiring a high degree of expertise and applied experience to achieve success and to minimize the risks of unplanned system and application outages.  Tri-Paragon

applies a rigorous approach to managing the risk of a data center move using its proven Data Center Relocation Methodology (DCRM).

Planning the relocation is the most critical and time-consuming activity to ensure all risks and mitigation strategies

are identified, detailed execution plans are developed, application maintenance windows are respected, and the move is carried out in an appropriate timeframe.  An experienced team is required for effectiveness and efficiencies to save time, costs, and most importantly – potential errors and accidents.

Our DCRM describes in detail the processes for; site selection, discovery and due diligence, and planning of the new data center (power, cooling, cabling, and layout requirements), including the project initiation, execution and close out processes.  Tri-Paragon’s years of experience planning and executing data center relocations provide our customers with a level of comfort that their critical assets are receiving the care they require and deserve.

Data Center Assessments

Identifying process gaps, skills gaps, outage risks and identification of data center single points of failure are a means to achieve data center risk management rehab.  When conducting a data center assessment, Tri-Paragon focuses on identification of potential threats and weaknesses that could potentially can cause an outage.

Our Data Center Health Assessment (DCHA) provides our customers with an actionable report that identifies; gaps in skills, procedures gaps, including single points of failure with an associated risk and mitigation matrix to reduce the potential for an outage caused by one of these threats.  Mitigation matrices are typically used to follow up and ensure the gaps have been effectively mitigated.

 

Infrastructure Refresh

A secure and reliable IT infrastructure is essential to ensure your staff and customers have access to the right technology and digital resources, quickly and easily.  An IT infrastructure refresh improves workplace productivity, increases collaboration across teams and ensures you secure your valuable data and business services.

Benefits include increased efficiency and performance by simplifying and consolidating hardware and adding required capacity.  Simply continuing “as-is” amid rapidly evolving and changing technology just doesn’t work.  New applications demand the performance and features often found in the newest systems.  CIO’s are constantly squeezed amongst these three issues; increasing business requests and requirements (more computing), requirements to reduce IT spending (lower budgets), and demands for more service speed and efficiency.

There’s always a temptation to make cost reduction the priority – usually with pressure from upper management.  However, one of the results of increased efficiency is reduced costs, so it’s the perpetual struggle to make strategic investments, such as; technology refreshes, that can ultimately save money for the organization.  Tri-Paragon migrates your applications and data to your new environment(s) while you continue to focus on responding to new business requests and requirements.

Data Center Infrastructure Decommissioning and Asset Disposal

Reliable data center decommissioning includes the systematic disposition of retired IT assets.  Tri-Paragon provides complete asset tracking and disposition services to support data center decommissioning.

Our project management team manages the entire disposition project and ensures all IT assets are properly recorded, tracked and that all digital data is destroyed.

Tri-Paragon’s project team provides a defined process, project management services and full accountability, while ensuring; business continuity, data security, and environmentally responsible reuse or recycling of retired IT assets based on your specific direction of disposal, reuse, or recycling.

Disaster Recovery (DR) Planning and Testing

A Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is a documented process or set of procedures to recover and protect a business IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster or an unexpected outage.  Such a plan, ordinarily documented in written form, specifies procedures your organization is to follow based on individual application specific plans.  An IT DRP provides a structured approach for responding to unplanned incidents that threaten an IT infrastructure, which includes; hardware, software, networks, processes, and people.

Protecting your organization’s investment in its people and technology assets – and your organization’s ability to conduct business – are the key reasons for implementing an IT disaster recovery plan.  A DR strategy and comprehensive DR plan are the cornerstone to ensuring infrastructure and applications continue to operate when a major outage is encountered.
