Mass Move Of Servers Between Two Data Centers

Jan 6, 2008

Has anyone pulled off a mass server move during the middle of the night? We have decided 350 E Cermak is where we want to be but are still working out the details of where we want to be in the building.

While the final details are being finished, I need to come up with some kind of plan to pull the move off with the least amount of downtime. Our current dc is about 4 miles away from 350 Cermak and we have approximately 50 servers to move. I plan on leaving a linux box around to redirect any traffic that is ignoring TTLs.

I was thinking the best thing to do would be label and remove all harddrives, then see if a moving company could put the servers on palettes, wrap them, and move them to 350 E Cermak. Not sure if a moving company would work in the middle of the night or not.

Courier services are pretty much out. Anytime we have had a courier service move anything not in a massive box with padding, it gets bent or broken.

I/o Data Centers - Scottsdale AZ / Reviews

Jan 15, 2008

I've been looking for a descent DC in North Scottsdale, AZ near the airport and came accross i/o Data Centers. It's a 100K sq ft, Tier 4 facility. I believe they managed the Downtown Phoenix Technology Exchange before selling it recently and this is their 1st DC with more planned.

Is anyone currently colocating there and could you comment on how things have gone so far with their services and DC and if you would recommend them? Pricing, cooling, how they are treating you?

I like most of what I'm hearing from them but would be great to hear some real world experiences.

I've tried a few DC's in Phoenix over the past few years but cooling has always been an issue with outdated cabinets.

Private Data Centers With FCC Satellite Uplink/downlink Connectivity

Aug 30, 2009

Does anyone know of a private Data Center with Satellite uplink/downlink connectivity in addition to Fiber?

I know the government depends on them for military purposes, but I was wondering if anyone is aware of a private, FCC liscenced data center with the capability to transmite/host data via satellite in case of disasters, remoteness etc. It seems complimentary for a data center but I haven't heard of it.

Is there any market research on this? What is a good source of information to find out about how many data centers there are, how much revenue they bring in, costs, etc? What is the data center bible?

What Is The Best Procedure To Move MySQL Data From One Disk To Another?

Jul 12, 2007

I have two hard disks, and I would like to move all of my MySQL data onto the second drive. My dilema is this; what is the best way to go about doing this? The tutorial I followed last night had me use cp to copy the /var/lib/mysql folder over to the second drive. However, it took ages to move one of my databases. It's a forum hosting database which has tons and tons of tables. It ran for about 5 hours and still didn't finish because I decided to stop it right there. I know it was working; but still, it took forever and I had to put it back up.

What would you do? Do you recommend say, copying just the 'mysql' database that has the users, and then taking a dump of all databases with mysqldump and moving it that way?

Also, is there any way using the cp command to continue what I started last night, but not write a database file if it hasn't chnaged at all?

How To Move 60GB Data From Windows Server To Linux

Jul 28, 2008

After long time consideration, selected linux eventually from singlehop, good company, good service.

Now we got big problem. Since our forum has 60GB data, I have no idea how to move files over.

If it was another windows server, I would just install a flashget (or similar download software) and put all HTTP links into it and just go to bed.

The data has been ZIPed into dozens of files, 1-3 GB each. HTTP link are ready for downloading, like

I was wondering what's the best way to move data. Can we install a programme and put those links into it and download into my server? Thank you for your suggestion.

I tried wget, seems not working, speed drops to 0 after 10 secs, don't know what reason.
