Datalink Completes Data Center Relocation For National Law Firm

Datalink (Nasdaq: DTLK), a leading provider of data center infrastructure and services, today announced the successful completion of a data center relocation project for Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, a national full-service law firm with approximately 500 attorneys across the U.S. and in Shanghai. The migration from the firm’s largest office in a Seattle high-rise to a nearby colocation facility was planned and orchestrated by Datalink’s Advanced Services team after extensive planning, culminating in a Friday night/Saturday morning move that was completed in 12 hours with no perceptible service interruption to DWT’s attorneys or staff.

The project involved relocating all of DWT’s servers and devices, along with email, document management and litigation support systems, SharePoint collaboration and extranet portals, and other firm-wide applications supporting more than 1,500 users. Datalink provided project management services including inventory and analysis of DWT’s data center environment; development of a strategy document identifying migration needs, multiple downtime options and associated costs; design and implementation planning ranging from timelines and contingencies to application mapping; and a 15-person day-of-move team to augment DWT’s in-house resources.

These services relieved Davis Wright’s IT team of 90% of the planning and project management workload directly related to relocating the data center. In addition, Datalink furnished consulting assistance for virtualization and other IT projects that had to be completed before the move, including finalizing an email failover system that was used to avoid an email outage while equipment was disassembled, moved 15 miles, reassembled and validated at the new site.

DWT selected Datalink to manage the project because of its data center relocation experience and its familiarity with DWT’s data center environment, stemming from a seven-year relationship that has spanned design, sourcing, deployment and support of infrastructure such as the law firm’s NetApp storage area network. Datalink has also completed other engagements for the firm, including a business continuity/disaster recovery planning and implementation project.
