The trends around managed services, big data and IT will continue to increase. With that, many companies will outgrow their existing environment and will have to outsource or build their own data center platform. With that in mind, executives must examine several factors when making that decision to create an optimal data center migration plan and execute it successfully.
What is Data Center Migration ?
A data center migration is the process of deploying and transferring an existing data center to another data center operating environment. It is a comprehensive process that systematically plans for migrating the existing data center to a new facility or site.
Why Data Center Migration ?
Before any decision considering a data center relocation, company should perform a thorough site audit and review the running costs, staff competences and equipment in the current infrastructure. Based on that data, company can identify proper place, where to move, and the mission critical machines that might need to be moved first and understand all the dependencies between different pieces of equipment. Then, a decision should be made around which machines need to be upgraded, decommissioned, or replaced. We recommend hiring our experienced professionals who will audit your site in detail and make recommendations for handling equipment and the data it contains.
