Relocation and upgrades are ongoing moving servers to Virtual Machines (WMs). Applications servers are being upgraded from 2008 to 2016, 2019 servers as part of relocation of services. Currently core switch needs to stay in place at the Civic Center for backup 911 center. When Civic center is torn down, engineering work will need to be done to remove the remaining infrastructure from the Civic Center to CWS or other location for disaster recovery and business continuity solutions.

Coordination with GA Power and telecommunications vendors resumed in the 2nd quarter and are on-going. This work is needed to harden electrical, voice and fiber infrastructure that remain at the Civic Center Data Center location. This is needed to provide robust disaster recover and business continuity solutions for the infrastructure at this location.
