Looking for a generic plan for data center move

By **LW** ·
Wondering if anyone has a generic data center equipment move plan that I could revise as necessary to reflect the specifics of my situation. Scope would not include any construction requirements of the new site other than certifying that the required environment (electrical specific to the moved equipment, cooling capacity, etc.) is in place and addressing any identified gaps. This is not a move into virgin space. I'm looking for something that covers the waterfront, including: (1) certifying new site readiness, (2) application systems dependencies, (3) network cutover, (4) move day & go live process, (5) risk assessment and fallback, (6) disaster plan revisions, (7) etc.

Generic moving project plan at www.bywater.net.au

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Looking for a generic pla ...

that may help you some by giving you a starting point - it is in MS Project and designed for general office moves with capability for expansion to suit specialised needs - it is a few years old and has been used for several general office moves. The file is about 380 kb, email me at ernest@bywater.net.au if you want a copy.

edited to add this update.

www.bywater.net.au
go to the menu item "Downloads"
on that page select the 2nd item labelled "Moving Project File"

NB: This was designed some years ago as a generic file, in Microsoft Project, to assist with moving an Administrative Office. I've used amended versions to move house, as well as a few office shifts.

Please feel free to download, amend, and use as you wish.

I would appreciate being sent a copy of any amended to be more data centre based, so that I can add this to the site.

For the last several months, I've been averaging 2 requests a week for this file. Now it's out there, go get it, if you want it.

Thank you

edited to add web site to title, hopefully this will encourage people to look for it there and get it quicker. If you find it useful and expand it, please send me a copy of the new version.

Update people - I placed this file on my website

by Deadly Ernest In reply to OK people - the Generic O ...

after I got about 60 requests for it. Change my website hosts about 90 days ago, and just checked the website stats.

Boy am I glad I put this on the web site, I've saved myself a lot of emails. During the last 90 days I've still have five requests for an email copy, but the web site has had 761 people download it from the web site averaging almost 8 and half copies a day.

I wonder, would you people have paid me $5 per copy for it or not, oh well, too late now. But I could've done with the money.
