Migration Project

Case Study

The Customer

Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire. They supply around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day whilst collecting, treating and disposing about 1 billion litres of waste water back into the environment

The Requirement

To design and implement a new storage infrastructure to refresh and replace the existing storage for Production and QA systems in 2 Data Centres

The Solution

A dual-site replicated EMC storage solution with Cisco SAN providing two independent cross-site fabrics

The Delivery

Working closely with EMC engineers the layout and configuration of both storage arrays was defined. A SAN configuration guide that provided detailed information on hosts, SAN directors and storage arrays was then produced and approved. A connectivity guide was produced that detailed end-to-end connections within the new structured cabling infrastructures at both sites. 


A detailed migration document was written in conjunction with Yorkshire Water’s Storage Services team whilst migration passports were drawn up for each system to be migrated. Systems were migrated to the new infrastructure using a 3-stage, host-based procedure where an existing connection from each system was moved to the new SAN, data was migrated to the new arrays and the remaining connection was then moved to complete the migration.

The Reason

As an experienced partner with a reputation for technical excellence and effective delivery, we were the customer's first choice
