Datalink (Nasdaq: DTLK), a leading provider of data center services and solutions, announced today that Irwin Teodoro has been selected to speak at the upcoming Data Center World Global Conference in Las Vegas about strategies for ensuring a successful data center move. Teodoro is Datalink’s National Director, Data Center Transformation, a practice that spans data center consolidation, data center relocation and data/infrastructure/application migration.
The session, “Mastering a Data Center Move: Tried and True Practices,” will take place from 8-9 am on Friday, May 2. Teodoro will address best practices for relocating a data center with minimal disruption, including how to mitigate risk, build an effective plan, streamline the process, and utilize proven methodologies such as bundling of dependent application, database and infrastructure elements for simultaneous migration in order to avoid application outages.
Teodoro’s recommendations are based on Datalink’s extensive data center relocation experience, including international moves for Fortune 500 companies carried out both physically and virtually with zero downtime. Services include complete project management; inventory and analysis of the 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 day-of-move team to augment the customer’s in-house resources.
