Datacentre Interim Management

Following the outsource of two of their three datacentres, a UK datacentre operator retained Mafi Mushkila to provide interim management of the remaining operational datacentre until the facility could be retired from operational service.

The engagement was initially for a 9-week period, which was extend by a further 9-weeks to allow the customer time to relocate remaining IT services. The datacentre required onsite management on a 24 x 7 basis, with senior management on call. Mafi Mushkila provided suitably experienced staff to provide cover for the shift pattern, a change management administrator and a datacentre manager.

Mafi Mushkila was responsible for:

  • Change management
  • Incident Management
  • Security and Access Control
  • Audit and Management Reporting
  • Health and Safety
  • Datacentre emergencies
  • Supervision of works
  • Collections and Deliveries
  • Hardware Installation and Decommissioning
  • Infrastructure Standards and Maintenance
  • Assistance with fault remediation
  • Liaison with mechanical and electrical technicians

Mafi Mushkila ensured that the standard of operational management did not drop, despite the fact that the datacentre was approaching the end of its operational life. This was vital to the customer as the datacentre still had critical ecommerce services operating from it, as well as legacy shared storage arrays that were being transitioned to new platforms.
