Summary: Major Data Center Consolidation with “Zero-Downtime” Throughout the Migration
For more than 125 years, Sentara Healthcare has grown as an integrated healthcare system throughout Virginia, North Carolina, and beyond. Sentara has one of only a few Level 1 trauma centers in Virginia and operates more than 100 sites of care, including 12 acute hospitals—seven in Hampton Roads (Southeastern Virginia), one in Northern Virginia, two in the Blue Ridge region of Virginia, one in southern Virginia and one in North Carolina.
Recently Sentara completed a major data center consolidation project with Transitional Data Services. This was necessary because the leading regional health provider lacked the expansion space, environmental infrastructure, and system capacities needed to support the organization’s planned growth and their next generation of technology-aided health care services.
After evaluating multiple service providers, Sentara selected TDS to help plan and manage the move to the new data center, which involved the migration of many hundreds of applications and related server, storage and network infrastructure. To achieve a “zero-downtime” goal throughout the migration, Sentara leveraged the TDS TransitionManager software tool to streamline the entire process of discovery, planning and execution.

Complete Data Center Transformation while establishing the foundation for a resilient, agile IT environment
IT organizations need a platform built specifically for planning, managing, and executing migrations, recovery events, M&As and other transformation projects, end-to-end.
Making decisions using data that is pieced together through a combination of spreadsheets, data exports, and email messages doesn’t provide project teams with a comprehensive understanding of compliance, security and other business requirements. That’s why TDS enhanced its rules engine, making it easy to write simple scripts that apply business rules to data, ensuring that the results will be aligned with business goals.
We continue to evolve TransitionManager’s capabilities, focusing first on what problem we are trying to solve for the customer. For enterprise architects and cloud professionals, finding the right information and leveraging the variety of tools available to plan and manage IT transformation projects is challenging and complex.
Transitional Data Services (TDS), a global leader in modernizations, and cloud and data center migrations, today announced TransitionManager 6.0. The new release includes enhancements to further automate complex hybrid cloud planning, decision-making, transformation, and migration. Together they enable customers to rapidly respond to cloud adoption, cyber preparedness, disaster recovery and digital transformation strategies.
