Advice gleaned from migrating more than 500 servers to a modernized SDDC
Business needAt Secureworks, a Dell Technologies company, we built a lab over a 15-year period that contained more than 500 physical and virtual servers. Our software development teams use the lab daily to design, develop, test and deploy critical applications to protect our customers.
Due to company growth and expansion and with minimal interruption to the teams that use the lab daily, we needed to relocate the lab across the country to our new Software Defined Data Center (SDDC). We were given 90 days to complete the move. Here we share what we did to meet the deadline, to work with other teams and to garner support from management.
