Deploying or implementing a new solution such as a storage platform, a server farm, a network or applications, is a daunting operation and a high risk task. As part of the whole infrastructure, the implementation of a new system can affect the global infrastructure. Within the “build” phase, the implementation tasks follow the physical installation of the different systems.
The “implementation” is the part where the individual solution is tailored to your individual needs. It is carried out in close collaboration with the customer to respond to their exact expectations.
The implementation takes into account the whole environment's performance, operational goals and business objectives. The implementation is a key operation and includes unitary and integration tests, tuning and performance analysis.
