Datacenter cutover this weekend

We are putting the finishing touches on a project which will move us from an old design (many 1U boxes, and some DBs with DAS arrays) to a modern, flexible infrastructure.  In the new design there is NAS, Vmware, and much less hardware.   It should also allow us to scale much better while fully utilizing storage and server hardware.  We have plans to launch a new product later this year, so this prepares us to better launch the product.  We still have some loadtesting to do, but we are in pretty good shape. 
After this project is over we have a couple of other large projects to complete before March to help merge together environments in our hosting facility.   Should be a very long weekend, but looking forward to being on the new environment.
