Business Challenge

EchoStar had a need to relocate a datacenter from one facility to another in Denver, CO. EchoStar needed to protect their data and applications throughout the move and after the relocation it was necessary to ensure the servers, program files, and data files were intact.

Developed Solution

UBS consultants worked closely with the stakeholders at EchoStar to lock down the scope of the project. Once we established scope. Our project teams entered into the planning phase, documenting requirements, activity definition, cost estimating, schedule development, and quality planning. UBS then led the execution phase of the project, building new racks in the new datacenter and preparing the new infrastructure. Equipment was then moved from the old facility to the new, servers were installed and networks were connected. UBS then began monitoring and controlling of the project included testing, scope verification and control, and performance reporting. Once testing was complete and the new data center was signed off on by the executive stakeholder at EchoStar, the old data center was decommissioned, including the removing of any remaining equipment.

Business Benefits
