Data Center Relocation

The client was faced with a required data center relocation. During the last few years they had been reliably running their applications on a VMS5.5-2 platform without disruption. Their applications required a very stable operating environment, and were set up for an X.25 network connection using an old DEMSA X.25 router that DEC had replaced with newer WAN technology.

Digitask determined that an upgrade to VMS 6.0 would require an upgrade in newer hardware and software. Instead of planning a phased upgrade to the new technology, the client elected to maintain the current hardware platform until it was more cost effective to upgrade.
