So far so good…

November 8, 2006

So far the new data centre migration including the migration from Sybase ASE 12.5.3 to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP1 x64 and Business Objects 6.5 to Business Objects XIr2 has been a huge success!

Migration to new data centre on Fri 3rd Nov

November 2, 2006

On Friday 3rd Nov we shall be migrating from our existing data centre to our new data centre. This isn’t simply a physical migration. It is a completely new data centre. The entire architecture and hardware components are different.

We are migrating our production and datawarehouse databases from Solaris 9 / Sybase ASE 12.5.3 to Windows Server 2003 x64 / SQL Server 2005 x64. We are also migrating from Business Objects 6.5 to Business Objects XIr2 at the same time.

Wish us luck!
