PlanNet lead the key effort in providing the planning and implementation for Reliance Steel & Aluminum in a recent data center consolidation and relocation project.

Reliance, the largest metal services center company in North America, was under a tight schedule to move out of one of their existing facilities to a new facility with a higher level of redundancy and managed services.

PlanNet successfully developed a move strategy as well as implemented the XREF tool to track dependencies and minute by minute cut over plans for multiple teams during all critical cutovers.  Multiple Data Centers were consolidated into two new facilities as well as moving their DR to a different facility.  PlanNet also provided necessary Program and Project management to create templates and produce deliverables based upon those templates.

PlanNet was able to help Reliance relocate within their required time frames as well as maintain their accepted outage windows for each move event.
