1 Data A Center Migration Service The Armada Networks Data Center Migration Service helps enterprises and service providers improve business agility, end-user experience, and total cost of ownership with minimal risk, complexity, and resource consumption. Optimizes Your Architecture and IT Investment While Mitigating Complexity and Risk Migration to a state-of-the-art data center is a strategic initiative that helps enterprises and service providers maintain market leadership, increase business agility, reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), meet regulatory requirements, as well as plan for future growth. Since the data center is the mission-critical service delivery platform for businesses, migrating a data center and all its IT assets is a complex, largescale change management effort that imposes significant investment and risk. Successful data center migration should address business, architecture, and operational challenges within each layer and across the entire IT stack (Figure 1). These challenges include maintaining business continuity, migrating legacy and packaged application, preserving mission-critical data during migration, realizing virtualization opportunities, preventing security breaches, and realizing green opportunities around power and cooling Armada Networks EhF and/or its affiliates.

2 Figure 1: Data Center Migration Challenges and Approach As shown in Figure 1, a successful data center migration strategy involves: Orchestrating meticulously the complex move of mission-critical data center assets from one site to another site. These assets include business and operations support, legacy and commercial off-the-shelf business applications, multivendor servers, terabytes of data in various storage formats, and network devices and appliances, along with miles of cabling, racks, power, cooling, and other physical equipment. Helping to ensure business continuity, maintaining application performance and availability, and delivering operational service levels throughout the physical move with little or no margin of error for costly, unplanned service outages or performance degradation that can affect user experience. Mitigating these risks requires business, operation, technology, architecture, and strategy expertise, which can create steep learning curves for enterprises and service providers. Growing the investment value of the data center by evolving data center strategy to meet the business objectives. One must be keeping up with emerging data center technologies, assessing the architectural value of these technologies, and establishing a multiyear deployment strategy to make sure that the migrated data center continues to demonstrate high performance and remains current well into the future. With the Armada Networks Data Center Migration Service, enterprises and services providers can improve business agility, end-user experience, and TCO with minimal risk, complexity, and resource consumption effect. The service is based on state-of-theart data center architecture and strategy, data center thought leadership, industryproven migration methodology, distinguished capability, and best-in-class partnerships. Our service helps mitigate large-scale change risks and complexities and avoid schedule delays and initiative cost overruns Armada Networks EhF and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

3 Migrate Your Data Center to High Value with Low Risk Whether you are moving all or just a portion of your data center, the Armada Networks Data Center Migration Service can mitigate risks and complexities, enabling a successful migration. A successful migration meets your strategic objectives within budget and on time and maximizes the value and return on investment of your new data center. Central to the Armada Networks Data Center Migration Service are the industry-proven Armada Networks data center migration methodologies (Figure 2). Figure 2: Data Center Migration Methodologies The methodologies feature several components: Discovery Move groups Migration strategy Risk analysis and mitigation plan Migration plan Migration implementation plan Program management office The methodologies are applied to each area across the entire IT stack, including business, application, server, storage, networks, facilities, and operational resources. This approach is designed to uncover migration-related risks and then to mitigate those risks early in the project lifecycle. It provides a repeatable level of success on large and complex data center migration initiatives. This holistic approach significantly reduces the project implementation time and provides a confident path to on-time completion. With our service, even a large-scale migration effort can be implemented with lower risk, in as short a time as possible and with optimum return on investment.

5 Tackle Hidden Risk Within the data center, business applications depend on various software components and run on servers that are connected to networks and storages. All these hardware and software components have complex and mission-critical interactions and interdependencies, which are either well documented or undocumented. The undocumented interactions and interdependencies are the most risky as they can lead to inadvertent misconnection or disconnection of application supporting infrastructure that can lead to major application outages. To significantly reduce this hidden risk, Armada Networksapplication dependency mapping (ADM) establishes a holistic and forensic view of known and hidden interdependencies, so that enterprises and service providers can plan for them. Armada Networks ADM examines these interdependencies from three different angles: servers, network, and business (Figure 3). The network offers the best vantage point to understand the interserver and interapplication interactions. Armada Networks ADM is distinguished by its capability to establish the forensic maps of invisible interdependencies that can cause application and SLA outages, as well as performance problems. Figure 3: Application Dependency Mapping: Server, Network, and Business Perspectives Grow Your Data Center Investment Armada Networks provides data center strategy development for the long term. We review your business needs and the IT stack and generates a multiyear strategy for each technology with suggestions on ways to immediately implement these strategies or others as needed during the migration. Armada Networks helps you realize the full value of your migration investment and evolve the data center strategy to meet future needs and stay current. Benefits The Armada Networks Data Center Migration Service helps enterprises and service providers to optimize data center architecture and IT investment while mitigating complexity and risks.
