Lessons Learned & Some Valuable Tips on a Data Center Move
September 12, 2013
Like many organizations, Houston Methodist Hospital's IT operation was born with a mainframe computer in makeshift space in one of the hospital buildings, retrofitted to house the computer systems. They continued to expand over many years, growing to over 2500 square feet, plus additional 600 square feet in other buildings.
Faced with the need to expand once again, they considered several options and finally chose to design, build and move to a new 4,000-square-foot data center facility. Sunbird executives had the opportunity to speak with Greg Rutledge, Data Center Manager, and Trey Jones, Director of IT Infrastructure Services, who were both involved in this major project from beginning to end. They shared the valuable lessons they learned and we share them with you in this eBook.
