This sample task overview covers a staged cutover migration approach to rebuild Adaptive Server. The scenario for this task list is:
The large company has a mature client/server environment with multiple applications residing on a single server.
In the event of failure, the company depends on nightly backups and transactions dumps. The system cannot be down more than one hour and cannot afford more than two hours of data loss.
The environment includes development, test, and production platforms. It requires enough space for duplicate servers on each platform.
The object-level rebuild strategy necessitates moving the data, which requires system downtime for the target application.
