This is great: Formally Modeling Database Migrations. I need more formal methods in my life.
Tonight I’m migration ProgClub and Blackbrick’s Slicehost slices from the St. Louis DataCenter to the Chicago DataCenter. I had to do a little prep work on charity, hope and honesty. Since that’s been done I’ve kicked off the migrations in the web-based Slice Manager, and at the moment I’m waiting for the migration operations to happen as they’re presently queued. There was some articles from Slicehost about the migration process which I read: Migration to Rackspace Cloud: [Sticky] St. Louis (STL) to Chicago (ORD) Migration Instructions and STL to ORD Migration Best Practices.
