This past January Harvard University migrated their Aleph v20 system from a physical Solaris server to a virtual Linux environment. This migration attempted a conversion to a "two-task" architecture: splitting the database server from the application server. The purpose of this migration was both to upgrade server hardware and to comply with Harvard's data confidentiality policies. In this session we will describe the challenges and opportunities encountered during this fast-paced hardware migration project, including the testing process, problems encountered, and lessons learned. This session may be of interest to any library considering a hardware migration.
