    Impact of Data Center migration on Hyperion

    Mikkis

      Hi All,

       

      I know this is rare occurrence for most, may be common for MSP providers, but still wanted to see if any of you has any idea on what we need to do before doing the migration based on your experience. We have 11.1.2.4 HFM, Planning, Essbase, FDMEE, Calc Manager, HFR. This is lift and shift, moving VMs from one DC to other.

      Things we have done so far are checking the deployment report and install doc to make sure no IP addresses are used anywhere. Would there be any performance issues if we move app servers to one DC and database in another DC. Asked if they can test network speed between App servers and DB servers before and after the move? I am guessing yes.

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Mikkis

          With different data centers performance issues will be there depends on retrieval times.

           

          Generally, Environment will be one DC, another Env may have in different DC.

           

          Thanks,

            You would want to really keep them in the same data centre if possible, you don't really want additional latency between the app and database layers.

             

            Cheers

              We recently migrated between data centres different country and different supplier.  The shift went well however as the new supplier had different general security policies we did run into a number of smaller issues.  Make sure that you take the fully list of install pre requisites and check that none of these are impacted by the DC move.

                You mean to say, you migrated completed environment from one DC to another DC, is it ? If yes, it will be okay.

                 

                But question here having one environment in different DC's.

                 

                Thanks,

                  Our environment is also for business continuity split over two DCs although both are run by the same provider.

                   

                  The entire environment was previously split between the two DCs and I ran some performance tests on it at the time e.g.  Web DC A -> HFM DC B -> SQL DC A and all other combinations and there was a notable drop in performance when traffic was between DCs when doing larger retrieves.  The DCs were connected by a 10G line.  My hypothesis is that if large packets of data are set that the performance drop is limited but with many smaller packets during a retrieve you experience a drop in performance.

                   

                  Hope this helps.
