Dry Run #1 12_10_17

It is currently 3:02 AM on Sunday, December 10, 2017.

The ADOA, IBM and Agency teams are in the process of arriving at the Command Center, located in the State Data Center at 1510 West Adams Street in Phoenix, AZ to execute Dry Run #1 as part of the Hosted Mainframe project.

The official outage window for this activity is scheduled to be 4:00 AM to 12:00 PM.   

We are expecting representatives from the Agencies to arrive by 6:00 AM, and the agency testing window will be from 6:30 AM to 9:30 AM.

During this activity, we will be completely shutting down the ADOA mainframe network in Phoenix, AZ and swinging the network to the new Multi-Tenant zCloud environment in Boulder, Colorado.   This first Dry Run's main objective will be to confirm network connectivity to the Boulder system by all of the participating agencies, and also to allow the agencies to begin executing their test plans.

A second Dry Run is scheduled for Sunday, January 7, 2018.   It will be executed based on Lessons Learned from this one.

The next update will be posted at 4:00 AM.

Thank you.
