Summary: Major Data Center Consolidation with “Zero-Downtime” Throughout the Migration
For 126 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.
