2 DEPLOYMENT
The deployment of a new system or enhancement to an existing one is a significant milestone
in the delivery of the project. It is critical however that the deployment is achieved successfully
with minimal disruption to current production services. To try to ensure this it is essential that
adequate preparation take place. This Deployment Checklist highlights the key elements
that need to be in place before the project deliverables can be accepted for deployment via
the Acceptance Sign Off Review.


2.1 Deployment Strategy

        Proposed deployment date:
                               st
         Initial deployment 31 August 2009 followed by phased migration of web sites from
         existing servers.
        User groups involved:
         All web hosting customers on servers IISWEB1 and Spike
         Reasoning for selection:
         Required for decommissioning of existing servers.
        Staged rollouts:
         Initially Law websites migrated from server IISWEB1 followed by phased migration of
         web sites from servers IISWEB1 and Spike plus provisioning of new sites as required.
        Assessment of risk to existing services and measures to mitigate these:
         None – All migrated sites will be UAT tested prior to removal of existing sites.
        Post deployment actions:
         De-commissioning of servers IISWEB1 and Spike.



2.2 Dependencies
Please identify any dependencies that could impact the deployment strategy.

It has been agreed that ColdFusion sites will not be migrated or created until the outstanding
ColdFusion 8 – 8 migration utility issue has been resolved.



2.3 Communication

Scheduling of existing site migration and customer communication will be performed
by the Service Management team on a site-by-site basis.



2.4 Technical Issues

Please revisit the Implementation Plan and note any additional issues for deployment that
may need to be addresses before sign-off is possible.

Given the demand for urgent implementation required to mitigate support issues for the
current servers the following has been agreed:

Live implementation can proceed, but no ColdFusion sites will be migrated or created until the
outstanding ColdFusion 8-8 synchronisation issue is resolved.
