    Migration from I to X
    Wolfgang Breidbach, Bank-Verlag GmbH
 


Customer Presentation

Bank-Verlag is doing card authorization with the oldest known active-active application.

In 2017 Bank-Verlag decided to replace the existing I-systems with new X-systems. There were 2 reasons: The disk- and cpu-capacity of the I-systems was not future-proof and, worse, the maintenance for 2 of the I-systems was running out in 2018. The biggest part of the projectwas the migration of the authorization application including copying all the data from I to X. A complete outage of the application was not possible. In addition we had to get Bank-Verlag’s home-grown monitoring tool to the new systems including our previously presented web-application.

The presentation will show the planning, a completely unexpected delay and some application problems during the migration.

Speaker Biography

Wolfgang has more than 40 years IT industry experience, spent in a variety of roles. Wolfgang joined Bank-Verlag in 1985, he was deeply involved in setting up the company’s IT infrastructure and migrating the Bank-Verlag from a publishing house to an IT service provider. He was responsible for setting up the DR concept of Bank-Verlag. He has set up two DR sites and has been responsible for the HP Integrity NonStop early adopter program in 2005 and and the migration to Integrity NonStop immediately afterwards.

Since 2009 he has designed and developed Bank-Verlag’s own NonStop monitoring tool because Bank-Verlag decided to use Nagios (today CheckMK) as the central monitoring server.

In 2017/2018 he carried out the replacement of Bank-Verlag’s systems from I to X without any outage visible to the customers. End of March 2018 Wolfgang has officially retired and is now working part time as a consultant for Bank-Verlag.
