What's it like to move 3,000 servers into a new data center? As part of its expansion in the U.S. market, LeaseWeb recently migrated 100 server-filled racks into a new data center hall at the COPT6 facility in Manassas, Virginia. The move took place over three nights, with no downtime. The LeaseWeb team has put together a video providing a behind the scenes look at the process and how they organized the project, which involved significant work to prepare the data hall, move the servers, and get them back online. This video runs 5 minutes.
