3 New Data Center ● External partner: Basis o ISO Certified o PCI-DSS o Hosts many companies ● Alþingi owns the hardware o Has it own “server rack”

4 The migration planning ● The planning and preparation took some months o Deciding which hardware should be moved o Move servers into virtual servers o Consolidate data that should be moved onto one SAN o Connection

5 Connections ● Between Alþingi and Basis o Primary connection through “Dark Fiber” (1Gb/s) o Secondary connection through IP 100Mb/s ● Internet connection via Basis

6 Traffic from January

7 Storage Area Network ● EMC (26TB)-> IBM (16TB) o Storage solution from EMC was left behind o New storage solution from IBM installed  All servers using SAN need to talk to IBM SAN  All data relevant data moved to IBM SAN solution (8TB) ● EMC still used for security cameras recordings (12TB)

8 Servers ● Before moving to Basis o Moving most servers Xen (virtual server) o VMware virtual servers moved to Xen ● 8 physicals servers moved o Sun x1 o Xen (SuperMicro) x1 with 36 virtual servers o Linux x5 o Windows x1

12 Problems ● Sun server does not boot normally

13 Problems ● Sun server does not boot normally ● Xen does not boot normally

15 Experience so far ● Mostly running smoothly ● One major incident in May o Earthquake o Problems in one aluminum smelter o Leads to power surge in the national power system
