Datalink has announced that Irwin Teodoro will share his recommendations for ensuring successful data center moves at next week’s Data Center World Global 2015 Conference in Las Vegas. Teodoro is Datalink’s senior practice director, Data Center Transformation, a practice that has executed numerous data center relocations including multi-country moves for Fortune 500 companies.

The session, “The Shift from Physical to Network-Driven Data Center Moves: Best Practices for Migrating Apps and Data,” will take place from 8-9 am on Wednesday, April 22, at The Mirage. Teodoro will cover best practices for network-driven migration of software applications and data, including key considerations for assessing, designing, validating, implementing and mitigating risk.

Topics to be discussed include conducting an inventory of software applications and interdependencies; assessing business requirements for each software application; conducting an inventory of the infrastructure that drives each application and interdependencies; carrying out software and data moves in “bundles;” gaining internal commitments; and lessons learned from real-world case studies.
