As our migration project covered several hundred domains, we decided to migrate in batches to limit the operational risks linked to a ‘Big Bang’ migration. An initial pilot batch enabled us to adjust the transfer protocol between the outgoing provider and SafeBrands. The batches were deployed over several months without major incident.
The main success factors were:
- The motivation of those involved
- The stringent execution and adherence to the deployment scenario (enabling several batches to be executed at the same time)
- The securing of the batches by the out-of-hours team.
