At some point the die has to be cast and the decision to implement a major upgrade is made. This was the case at Dutch Cocoa. In order to prevent incompatibility and further guarantee operational reliability, it was decided to upgrade the current PCS 7 system. Version v6.1 had to be replaced by v8.0 SP1. And of course, CoNet was called upon to make it happen!
Conversion with operations ongoing.
It was essential to minimize down-time as much as possible. Considering the extent of the job – a total number of four new servers were involved – the actual migration was first tested offline on the new platform. This helped us avoid any surprises; incompatibilities were extracted during this stage. As a result, the entire migration process led to only six hours of down-time!
